ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A 21-year-old Minneapolis man is charged in federal court with threatening an FBI agent during a routine interview.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says Mohamed Ali Omar made an initial court appearance Monday.

According to the complaint, two FBI agents and a language interpreter went to Omar’s house on Thursday to interview a member of his family.

Prosecutors say when the agents and interpreter arrived, Omar opened the door and told the agents that he had a “permit to carry, and if they came back, he would get them.”

Omar also told the agents that they “knew his history.” FBI agents understood Omar to mean he would shoot them if they returned to his house.

Omar is due back in court Friday. It’s unclear if he has a defense attorney.
