When Keyon Tishaye Dickens got a phone call from the Social Security Administration in Georgia last year telling him funds the agency had overpaid him would be clawed back, Dickens responded by vowing to bomb or shoot up the federal office and its workers, according to a newly-filed federal plea agreement.

“I’m going to shoot the office up and I’m going to blow it up. I haven’t decided yet what I’m going to do,” Dickens railed in October 2023 phone call with a customer service representative at the Social Security office on Robert C. Daniel Parkway in Augusta.

“Just let them know I’m on my way down there and to look out for me,” Dickens said before showing up to the office with a backpack in tow.
