A West Virginia man was arrested after authorities said he called and threatened to shoot people in the Capitol Hill office of Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.).

Alan Anderson was arrested in Logan County and was held on a charge of retaliation against a public official, a West Virginia Regional Jail official told HuffPost. Anderson was jailed under a $25,000 bond, according to the regional jail’s website.

According to WCHS, West Virginia State Police said they received a call at approximately 12:30 p.m. that Anderson had phoned Rockefeller’s office and threatened to shoot 10 to 12 people.

Rockefeller’s office would not comment on the alleged threats.

West Virginia’s other senator, Joe Manchin, also recently received threats from a citizen of his home state. Steven Anthony Major was indicted in April on charges he threatened to kill Manchin and made violent threats against his family members.
