In the first picture, you can see someone holding a gun in a car behind a state trooper. In the second picture, State Police say the same person is holding the same gun in front of the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office.

State troopers say they are taking these photos as a threat. They say this is because the pictures are purposely being taken around police officers, without their knowledge of it.

State Police believe the person is driving a 2007-2012 Nissan Altima.

They say they have experts looking to find who runs this Facebook page, but they also need the public’s help.

If anyone knows this individual or sees anyone acting suspicious, taking pictures with a gun in their car around police officers, they’re asked to contact law enforcement.
