Feds: Brunswick man threatened gunfire rampage

  • Follow Latest News

BRUNSWICK, Ga. — A Brunswick man accused of threatening to get his gun and "shoot everyone" at a local Social Security office will remain jailed until trial.

Thomas Taylor is charged with threatening to assault and murder a federal official over a confrontation with a Social Security representative on Oct. 14.

U.S. Magistrate Judge James Graham ordered Taylor held in jail without bail after a hearing Thursday. The judge said there was a serious risk that Taylor would endanger others if released.

Taylor did not testify during the hearing. Federal agent George Jacobi said Taylor became agitated when a Social Security representative told Taylor that he needed to file a request to appeal deductions to his benefits.
