According to KY3
Crowds have gathered in Eminence, Missouri as a protest is expected Saturday afternoon in Shannon County.
A protest was planned in response to a death investigation dating back to 2018. A local family is concerned with how the case has been handled by the Shannon County Sheriff’s Office.
The Shannon County Sheriff says credible threats were made against him, his deputies and jail staff, including threats to harm and threats to damage the courthouse and other buildings.
Sheriffs have reached out to state defense ahead of Saturday. At least 100 people have gathered in downtown Eminence some carrying weapons.
