According to a criminal complaint, around 6:32 a.m. on January 13, 2019, Marienville-based State Police received a phone call from Scot McDermid requesting that the state police return his firearm, which was seized during an unrelated incident.

According to the complaint, around 8:32 a.m. on January 13, the Marienville-based State Police received a phone call from a known female regarding threats made by McDermid.
