Police arrested a grocery clerk from California after they say he told them he had a hit list to kill Joe Biden, ex-presidents, and other political leaders.
Law and Crime reports that Kuachua Brillion Xiong faces one count of threatening to kill a former president of the United States.
Among those they say he had on his hit list are Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Mark Zuckerberg.
Xiong is described as a recently fired grocery clerk from Merced in Central California who police in Iowa stopped for driving aggressively, according to the New York Post.
Court records indicate that Sheriff’s Sgt. Tyler Shiels found an AR-15-style assault rifle, ammunition, loaded magazines, body armor, medical kits and a grappling hook.
“He added that if released from custody he would immediately resume traveling to the White House in Washington, DC and ‘do whatever it takes’ to complete his plan,” the complaint read, according to Law and Order. “Xiong stated that he has no intention of returning to California to see his family because he plans on dying while fighting evil demons at the White House.”
The Post reports authorities found money Xiong had earmarked for his own funeral.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
