Sentence Given to Man Who Threatened to Shoot up the Albany VA

A western New York man is sentenced to time served after threatening to use a submachine gun to kill people at the Albany Veterans Hospital. 

The U.S. Attorney's Office says 58-year-old Robert Seifert of Canandaigua had pleaded guilty to a charge of making an interstate threat to injure another. Prosecutors say he made the threat during a phone call last June to the Veterans Crisis Line. He made the call to an operator in Portland, Oregon in which he stated “I got an Uzi and I wanna kill everybody at the Albany VA.”

Seifert will also serve 3 years of supervised release.
