SAN ANTONIO – A longtime San Antonio Police Department communications employee was arrested Tuesday, a day after officers said he threatened to carry out a workplace shooting.
Jimmy Tucker, 45, was taken into custody after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He is charged with making a terroristic threat.
Tucker, while talking about recent shootings yesterday, told another city employee, “One day it will happen here and I will be the one to do it,” an SAPD spokeswoman confirmed.
Tucker has worked for SAPD Communications for 15 years.
