"We received an allegation that inappropriate comments were made. We are currently investigating the nature of those comments," D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump tells ABC7 ( a Wahington DC TV station ).
The Post reports that the officer was speaking to other officers when he allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady. He then displayed a photo of the gun he would use that was on his cell phone, the Post reports.
