( – A man from California has been indicted by a grand jury in Atlanta after he threatened Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D).

On Friday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia put out a press release in which it was noted that 66-year-old Marc Shultz had made threats to Willis related to the case brought forward by her office against former President Donald Trump. 

In October 2023, Shultz had allegedly posted comments on two YouTube livestream videos in which he threatened violence and murder against Willis, and in one of the remarks had even argued that she was going to be “killed like a dog.” This was part of the information that was presented in court. 

In the release, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta Keri Farley argued that threats against any individual are considered to be a serious crime and would not be tolerated. She added that specifically when the threats of violence are against government officials, they are a threat to the country’s democracy. She pointed out that this was why they wanted people to know that if they engaged in this type of behavior, they would be fully held accountable under the law. 

Willis also thanked U.S. Attorney Ryan Buchanan and the FBI for having shown that an African American elected official’s life was valued and for their efforts to ensure her safety, as well as the safety of her family and office.
