WASHINGTON D.C. — (04-04-23) — A Maryland man who threatened to “slaughter” people at an LGBT organization in Washington, D.C., is in federal custody. The man allegedly made the threat in retaliation for the school shooting in Nashville that was committed by a transgender shooter, according to a criminal complaint released by federal authorities on Tuesday.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, on the evening of March 28, 2023, the victim organization received a threatening voicemail from a phone number, which investigators identified as belonging to Adam Michael Nettina.

The message referenced the March 27, 2023, mass shooting at a school in Nashville, Tennessee, involving multiple shooting fatalities, where the perpetrator was publicly identified as being transgender. During the call, numerous threats were made including, “…We’ll cut your throats. We’ll put a bullet in your head….You’re going to kill us? We’re going to kill you ten times more in full.”

If convicted, Nettina faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison for interstate communications with a threat to injure. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

Despite claims surrounding the Nashville shooter, gun-violence data actually shows almost none of the hundreds of mass shootings in America were ever committed by members of transgender community.

Adam Michael Nettina had his first court appearance on Monday and remains in custody.
