A Florida deputy who allegedly told a colleague he wanted to kill federal officials on the same day of the US Capitol riot was arrested Tuesday.

Peter Heneen, a deputy with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, sent explicit Facebook messages to a coworker detailing how he would shoot and kill federal officials, the sheriff’s office said Tuesday.

Heneen, 29, who has been with the department for more than six years, was suspended pending his termination.

In the messages, Heneen says his goal was to shoot “the feds” and make sure “the streets of DC run red with the blood of these tyrants,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Heneen also texted, “Should have [dragged] those tyrants out into the streets and executed them,” and “I will slit their throats if they touch my family. I will make them suffer.”

Heneen’s co-worker reported him on Jan. 8 as the messages continued to get more violent, Polk Sheriff Grady Judd said.

He’s been charged with making written threats to kill, conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism.
