Atlanta Man Says He’ll Turn Two Local Gay Bars Into “The Next Orlando”

by Derek de Koff June 16, 2016

UPDATE: Although the investigation is still ongoing, police claim the incident is likely a hoax and the result of a hack. Sgt. Warren Pickard told WSB Radio, “At this point we do believe his account was hacked. We do have some credible leads.” However, as Project Q reports, police have yet to comment on tweets from April on Edgerton’s account that claimed he “will terrorize the gays in Atlanta.”

An Atlanta man is currently being investigated after tweeting that he could make two local gays bars into “the next Orlando.”

A previous tweet simply said, “You are all dead to me,” and his Twitter account’s headline (handle @BrettTEdgerton) read: “I will be the last person you will see.”


The account has now been taken down, but hundreds of people in the Atlanta community shared his tweets on Tuesday before the police ultimately got involved.

Edgerton has yet to be changed with any crime, but the investigation is ongoing.
