A Utah man was shot dead by FBI agents after suspected threats against President Biden, just hours before Biden’s visit to Utah.
Craig Deleeuw Robertson, hailing from Provo, Utah, was fatally shot by the FBI on Wednesday while they were executing a warrant.
This incident occurred mere hours prior to President Joe Biden’s anticipated arrival in the state known as the Beehive state.

He Was Hinting at Targeting the President
As per an official statement from the FBI, the occurrence transpired at 6:15 a.m., a few miles south of Salt Lake City.
Just two days prior to this operation, Robertson had taken to social media, hinting at his intentions to target President Biden during his visit to Utah.

Through an examination of court records, investigators revealed that Robertson possessed a long-range sniper rifle and other weaponry.
He had made previous allusions to a potential “presidential assassination.”
