FEDERAL BUILDING THREAT

A Wheeling man is charged with threatening to shoot up a federal building that was previously targeted by a gunman who was killed by police.
Wheeling police say a woman who was with Coffman on Wednesday told them that he said: "If everything keeps going like this, I am going to do what the cop did to the federal building, and I can get the guns."
Coffman was apparently referencing an October incident in which former police officer Thomas Piccard fired 26 shots into at the federal courthouse before being shot and killed by authorities.
