DETROIT – A Detroit man is due in court for a preliminary hearing for allegedly posting threats against police on social media.
Nheru Gowan Littleton, 40, is charged with making terroristic threats and using a computer to commit a crime. Both are 20-year felonies.
“Threatening the life of a police officer is a threat against our entire community. We take these threats very seriously,” said Detroit police Chief James Craig. “I’ve made a commitment to the men and women of the Detroit Police Department; I will not ignore those who threaten their safety. I refuse to let threats against officers go without a response.”
Littleton allegedly posted numerous direct threats to law enforcement officers on social media. The post was reported to the Dearborn Police Department.

Dearborn police issued a Law Enforcement Information Network message to all area law enforcement agencies about the threat.
Police said Littleton has a valid concealed pistol license and owns a Smith and Wesson .45 caliber firearm, according to the attorney general’s office.
