By  | 

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The man named in a federal complaint, threatening to shoot North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp sent a package and several emails to VNL's Point of View program. POV host Chris Berg said Kevin Olson has frequently commented on the show and sent emails to the show before in which he discussed his displeasure with the Affordable Care Act, Heitkamp and the Obama administration. Shortly before Christmas, a package was delivered to the VNL studios, presumably from Olson and addressed to Berg. The package remained unopened until today. Inside were documents detailing a complaint against the federal government and his thoughts on voting and freedom of religion.

Probable cause documents filed in federal court claim Olson not only threatened to shoot Heitkamp but also showed emails where he told the Senator "I'm coming for you!!"

Tonight only on Valley News Live at 6, we will breakdown what was in the packet and delve more deeply into who Kevin Olson is and what he wanted from elected officials before investigators say he made the threat which got him arrested.
