A man who works for the city's Independent Police Review Authority remains in custody this morning after being charged with threatening to "go postal" and kill himself and three co-workers, police said.
A judge Thursday set bail at $100,000 for Brian T. Lockhart, who is charged with threatening a public official, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office.
Lockhart, 35, remains in custody today and is scheduled to appear in court again on Tuesday in Branch 48, at 155 W. 51st St., according to the sheriff's office.
Lockhart was arrested Tuesday after being discharged from St. Joseph's Hospital where he was taken after the Jan. 10 incident at the IPRA offices in the West Town neighborhood, 1615 W. Chicago Ave., according to a police report.
Lockhart threatened to "go postal" and kill three co-workers, including the agency's chief administrator before killing himself, according to the report.
The agency investigates allegations of wrongdoing against police, all police-involved shootings, extraordinary occurrences in lock-up, and uses of Tasers, according to IPRA's website. IPRA also may make recommendations of changes to training and policy, according to the site.
Lockhart was hired by the city in August, 2006 and was assigned to the department of General Services as a clerk making $13.39 an hour, records show.
An IPRA spokesman was not immediately available.
