An Alabama man who allegedly spray painted threats near government buildings and fired a shotgun outside of an Air Force base was arrested Wednesday after a 12-hour standoff with police.
Matthew Elliott Shashy, 28, barricaded himself in his Montgomery home Tuesday night after his alleged series of bizarre crimes led police to him. He now faces three felony charges of making terrorist threats, the Montgomery Advertiser reported.
According to police, Shashy spray painted the message, “Kill the zionist slaves secret society, secret police extortionists” outside the Montgomery Police headquarters on Saturday.
Police later found the phrase “All slavers die here” painted in front of the Alabama Capitol building and the Maxwell Air Force Base.
Shashy also allegedly fired three rounds from a shotgun toward the entrance of the base Tuesday morning.
Police have found even more graffiti “consistent” with the other menacing messages, Montgomery Police Officer Scott Tatum said in a Wednesday press conference. But it has not been revealed with the other graffiti say.
The motive for Shashy’s mayhem is unknown. He is being held in the Montgomery County Detention Facility on $45,000 bond.Send a Letter to the Editor
