CHICAGO — The Chicago Tribune on Thursday reported that Shane Sleeper, 31, who had been accused of threatening gay bars in Chicago, as released on Tuesday night.
The newspaper reported that the release was accidental and that Sleeper is still at large.
From the Tribune:
Sleeper was arrested in February and initially charged with misdemeanor charges of obstructing and resisting a peace officer, according to Cara Smith, policy chief for Cook County Sherif Tom Dart. In one of his threats, Sleeper allegedly said “Orlando will come to Chicago,’’ an apparent reference to the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla.
