The woman played the recording of McIntyre’s threat for an Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office Corporal, the complaint says. 

A man reported getting a similar call on the same day from McIntyre, in which he said he was going to hunt for and hurt a group of men he saw with the first witness in the case then hurt himself, the complaint said.
