ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

An armed St. Louis Deputy is facing charges for allegedly threatening to commit a shooting at work.

Christopher McDonald, 48, is charged with making a terrorist threat.

He allegedly told a co-worker that he planned to quit his job and shoot up the City Marshall’s Office.

Police allege he approached a co-worker and said he was soon leaving his job and was “going to go out ABB style.” The co-worker believes McDonald was referencing a shooting at ABB in north St. Louis in 2010, in which an employee killed several co-workers.

The co-worker of McDonald said he didn’t wanted to get shot, so McDonald texted him the night before the shooting was to be carried out to tell him to call in sick.

McDonald was disarmed on while at work on June 29, police say.
