WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man has been charged after authorities say he threatened to storm the Sedgwick County Courthouse and kill law enforcement officers if a man on trial for murder was found guilty.

Twenty-two-year-old Samuel McCrory was charged Tuesday with criminal threat and nine counts of unlawfully carrying a firearm. McCrory was arrested last week after police say he posted comments in an exchange about storming the courthouse on Facebook in reference to the trial of Kyler Carriker.

According to authorities, several people reported the comments to law enforcement, which resulted in increased security around the courthouse. Carriker was found not guilty July 30 in the 2013 shooting death of Ronald Betts.
