Arizona Shooting Survivor in Custody After Making Death Threats

Cited story:

(CNN) — A man who was shot but survived last Saturday’s massacre in Tucson, Arizona, was taken to a county mental services unit Saturday after making a threatening comment at a town hall event, also in Tucson, Pima County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jason Ogan said.

James Eric Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed after he made threats against a Tea Party member at the event sponsored by ABC News, Ogan said.

Fuller photographed Trent Humphries and said “You are dead” when Humphries began speaking at the event, according to Ogan.

He was taken into custody after 12 p.m. (2 p.m. ET).

Fuiller has not been charged and Ogan said it is unclear whether Humphries will press charges.

The town hall event was held at Tucson’s St. Odilia Church and was taped for Christiane Amanpour‘s “This Week” program on ABC.
