Worker threatened to ‘shoot everyone’ at Atlanta Braves’ stadium: warrant

A man who worked at Atlanta Braves stadium threatened to “shoot everyone there” and blow up the 41,000-seat ballpark, authorities said.

Jamar Antonio Golfin, 30, was charged with a single felony count of making terroristic threats or acts after storming off during a break early Friday while cleaning a seating area at  SunTrust Park, before the Braves hosted the Cincinnati Reds later that evening, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Golfin, who was hired as a temp employee, then tore into his supervisor and a Braves security guard as he was asked to leave the stadium, threatening to “kill them all” and promising to “come back and shoot everyone there,” according to an arrest warrant.

Golfin also vowed to come back and “blow up the place,” the warrant states.

He was taken into custody on Saturday by deputies in Cobb County. Golfin remained in custody as of Thursday on $16,720 bail, according to jail records, which did not list an attorney who could comment on the allegations.

A spokeswoman for the team told the newspaper that Golfin has been hired by a third-party vendor and was no longer employed by that firm.

Authorities in Cobb County responded to a threat at a stadium on Friday, but a police spokesman declined to confirm whether the report was connected to Golfin. Bomb-detecting dogs regularly sweep SunTrust Park in Cumberland before and after every public event, the Marietta Daily Journal reports.
