Feds: Gunman at Army hospital threatened to kill Obama

- Associated Press - Tuesday, September 7, 2010

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Federal prosecutors on Tuesday said a former Army soldier told authorities he planned to kill President Obama and former President Bill Clinton after he was arrested in a hostage standoff at a Georgia military hospital.

Charges filed in federal court Tuesday identified the suspect as Robert Anthony Quinones. Authorities said he's the former soldier who took three employees hostage Monday at Winn Army Community Hospital at Fort Stewart. No one was injured.

Besides charges related to the hospital standoff, court documents say Mr. Quinones told investigators after his arrest Monday that he planned to kill Mr. Obama and Mr. Clinton. He also is charged with making threats against them.

The court documents said Mr. Quinones was discharged from the Army in February.
