A 48-year-old has been arrested in Seattle on suspicion of hate crime after he allegedly threatened to kill Congressmember Pramila Jayapal. Officers found the man outside Jayapal’s home Saturday night with a .40-caliber handgun holstered on his waist. A neighbor reportedly overheard the man yell, “Go back to India. I’m going to kill you.” Jayapal is the first Indian American woman to serve in the House of Representatives.
