Man accused of threatening to kill police

A man accused of threatening to kill Spokane police has been arrested by U.S. Marshals.

Shawn Michael Buroker, 21, was taken into custody Thursday in Asotin County, Wash.

Buroker was sentenced in January to three years probation for conspiracy to commit burglary in Nez Perce County.

He moved to Washington in March under an interstate supervision agreement.

Buroker reportedly threatened to kill the Spokane police officers that he believes killed his father, Ira Shawn Buroker, in Spokane eight years ago.
