JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ Authorities have charged a Jacksonville man with making threats against his supervisors at Chase Financial. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says 37-year-old Rodney David Rhyne felt slighted and discriminated his job. He had also received poor performance reviews.
Rhyne allegedly told a coworker he planned to go to Orlando where he had several guns and shoot four of his bosses in the head. The colleague contacted authorities.
Then he told the co-worker he would have 12 rounds in the magazine in order to put three bullets in each of their heads, the report said.
The co-worker called police, who arrested Rhyne at his apartment in the 8700 block of Southside Boulevard. Police said he told them he was only “blowing off steam.”
Rhyne was committed to the Mental Health Center of Jacksonville for evaluation Thursday because of his “mental instability” and making statements about wanting to harm others as well as himself, according to the report. He was jailed Friday on a $2,503 bond.
