The Justice Department said in a press released it arrested 29-year-old Cortez Lamont Edwards, a resident of Louisville, Kentucky.
Edwards reportedly stated in the video that he would shoot Louisville Metro Police Department officers in exchange for $30,000.
Edwards' alleged threat came the same day that Louisville was plunged into further chaos after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced the police officer responsible for shooting Breonna Taylor would not be criminally punished for Taylor's untimely death.
Unfortunately, two Louisville police officers were shot after Cameron's announcement.
"Louisville needs healing and safety for its citizens, not armed felons seeking bids to shoot police," U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman said.
