SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) - A man has been jailed on charges he threatened to shoot a woman who worked at a western Pennsylvania county agency, which remains locked down as a result.

The (Somerset) Daily American (https://bit.ly/1J4zz5Q ) reports 32-year-old Joshua Lee Miller, of Meyersdale, was arraigned Tuesday on charges of making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct.

Somerset police say that happened on Dec. 17, when Miller called his ex-girlfriend’s mother at the Area Agency on Aging of Somerset County and threatened to shoot her and her daughter.

Police say Miller was taken into custody on a mental health warrant before he was released and criminally charged.

He remains jailed and faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 5.

Online court records don’t list a defense attorney for him.
