Man charged after threatening to kill police following fatal officer-involved shooting in Racine

RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A man accused of threatening to kill Racine officers after last week's officer-involved shooting is now charged. 

45-year-old Kenneth Anderson now faces more than six years in prison if convicted. 

According to the criminal complaint, officers responded to a hospital in Racine for a report of a disturbance on Sunday. 

Anderson allegedly entered the emergency room, saying he wanted to be admitted for a mental evaluation but became agitated and began yelling at staff.

Anderson then allegedly left the hospital and returned a short time later. According to the criminal complaint, Anderson then told the hospital staff that he was very upset about the officer-involved shooting that happened earlier.

Anderson then allegedly told staff, "I know the investigator that shot my friend. I am waiting until his name is released tomorrow. I know where he lives. I am going to wear a black mask, sneak into his house, and kill him and his family while they sleep."

Anderson is now charged with Disorderly Conduct and Threat to Law Enforcement and Family of Law Enforcement Officer.
