FBI: Orange County School Threats Don’t Seem Credible

Authorities are looking for a man who posted a series of messages on Twitter, threatening to shoot students and place pipe bombs inside Orange County schools.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the FBI, Orlando Police Department and Orange County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the threats, but don’t believe they are credible.

Deputies are looking for 23-year-old Jesus Henry Kong, also known as Jessie Eloah Calix and Jesus Matute. Officials say he has a “history of law enforcement encounters” and is a transient who has lived in Florida, California, Virginia and Maryland.

“Every investigative lead is being aggressively followed in order to identify and locate the subject making the threats,” said FBI Special Agent Amy Pittman. “Although the FBI does not believe that the threat is credible, as the subject does not reside in Florida, we will continue to work with local partners to locate the subject.”

The Morning MIX had News Channel 6’s Mark Lehman on this morning for some more in depth information:
