A Utah man, Craig Robertson who made online threats against President Joe Biden was killed Wednesday in an FBI raid.

The killing came hours before the president was scheduled to land in Salt Lake City.

In a statement, the FBI said the man, who it did not identify, was shot at about 6:15 a.m. outside his home in Provo as agents tried to serve an arrest and search warrants.

However, KSTU-TV, CBS News and ABC News identified the man, citing court records.

The man had threatened to “inflict bodily harm” on the president during his visit to Utah in a social media message sent Monday, court records obtained by KTSU-TV show.

“I hear Biden is coming to Utah. Digging out my old Ghillie suit and cleaning the dust off the M24 sniper rifle,” Robertson allegedly wrote in the message.

The man had additionally said he was going to travel to New York to assassinate Alvin Bragg, the district attorney in Manhattan who is overseeing one of the three criminal cases faced by former President Donald Trump.

“I’ll be waiting in the courthouse parking garage with my suppressed Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm to smoke a radical fool prosecutor that should never have been elected,” he posted. “BYE, BYE.”

The man was visited by FBI agents in March, resulting in him telling them not to return without a warrant.

“The FBI tried to interfere with my free speech right in my driveway. My 45ACP was ready to smoke ’em!!!” a man named Craig Robertson posted on Facebook after the FBI visit.

In another post, he had said the agents came close to “violent eradication.”

“The FBI takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members seriously,” the FBI said in a statement to KTSU-TV.
