WASHINGTON — A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted a Massachusetts man on weapons charges related to his alleged threats to kill Secretary of State George P. Shultz and President Reagan.
The indictment adds two federal and four District of Columbia weapons charges against Edward L. Gallo, 41, who was arrested Tuesday on charges of threatening a public official and carrying a weapon across state lines to carry out a threat against a public official.
Held Without Bond
Gallo, of Worcester, Mass., remained in custody without bond Thursday, awaiting a hearing today before a U.S. magistrate who had ordered that he undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
Gallo was arrested at a northeast Washington hotel after police were tipped off by his mother, according to court papers. She reportedly told police that he had threatened to kill the secretary of state and had made threats against Reagan.
