LOUISVILLE, Ky (WEHT) According to a criminal complaint, on September 23, Cortez Lamont Edwards of Louisville went live on Facebook brandishing an AR variant pistol.
In the video Edwards says he is seeking $30,000 to shoot Louisville Metro Police Department officers on scene for a disturbance in the street in front of his house.
An investigation into Edwards revealed he is a convicted felon and is therefore not permitted to own a firearm.
A search warrant was executed without incident Sunday by agents from several law enforcement organizations, including Homeland Security.
Edwards has been federally charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
If convicted, he faced a maximum sentence of ten years, a $250,000 fine, and three years supervised release.
