A fatality occurred in Utah County following an incident early Wednesday morning where FBI agents were engaged in a shooting. This event was linked to an ongoing investigation regarding purported threats against President Biden.

According to a representative from the FBI who spoke with ABC4, the shooting involving agents transpired at approximately 6:15 a.m. The agents were situated at a residence in Provo, where their objective was to execute an arrest and search warrant for an individual named Craig Deleeuw Robertson.

ABC News verified that the FBI operation was related to the threats directed at President Biden, who is presently touring three western states, including Utah. President Biden’s presence in Utah is anticipated on Wednesday afternoon, followed by a scheduled press conference regarding the PACT Act on Thursday morning.

Authorities informed ABC News that the inquiry was initiated in April, with the FBI notifying the U.S. Secret Service about it in June. In addition to reportedly sharing threatening content online, agents assert that Robertson indicated his intentions to take concrete actions through online channels.

As per legal records, Robertson made online posts stating that “I hear Biden is coming to Utah. Digging out my old ghille suit and cleaning the dust off the M24 Sniper Rifle. Welcom, Buffoon-in-Chief!” 

In the course of their inquiry, the FBI reported that Robertson purportedly possessed a sniper rifle and a ghillie suit. The investigation further revealed multiple social media posts allegedly authored by Robertson, containing various threats or appeals for acts of violence targeting the president and other officials. These posts date back to September 2022 and beyond.

Apart from the purported threats directed at President Biden, legal records indicate that Robertson also allegedly made threats of traveling to New York with the intention of realizing his aspiration to harm Alvin Bragg, the District Attorney of New York County.

According to the FBI’s investigation, this post was made while Bragg was overseeing the criminal inquiry involving former President Donald Trump.

The investigators found the threats conveyed through social media to be credible.

In March, when approached by FBI investigators concerning his social media post that contained a threat towards Bragg, Robertson reportedly responded by stating, “I said it was a dream,” and conveyed that the interaction with the FBI could be concluded, according to court documents.

Subsequently, Robertson is said to have issued threats against the FBI on social media, inquiring whether they were still monitoring his online activity. Allegedly, he wrote, “Checking so I can be sure to have a loaded gun handy in case you drop by again.” Furthermore, Robertson is purported to have posted that Facebook would censor him, and he suggested that the FBI would pay him another visit if he were to express his true intentions regarding President Biden.
