Local lawyer threatens to shoot office staff

This is a sad story from WYFF:

A Greenville lawyer faces charges that he threatened to shoot people in his office last week.
Benjamin Ward McClain Jr. is charged with breach of peace of a high and aggravated nature.
Police said McClain called his downtown law firm on Friday afternoon and told an employee he was on his way to shoot everyone.

That employee called 911. Police said that when they arrived, they found McClain sitting in his car. Police said that there was a loaded gun in the glove box of the car.

Police said that when they arrived, two officials with the state Attorney General's office were at the firm's offices.

The Attorney General's office said that the officials were at the office to investigate misconduct at the law firm.

Let's all be thankful that no one was hurt.
