JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – A central Missouri man is facing a federal charge for allegedly threatening to shoot President Barack Obama.
Cameron Stout, 24, of Stover, was charged Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Jefferson City with making threats against the president.
An affidavit from a Secret Service agent says Stout had several conversations during the past week with a confidential informant who is a former Aryan Nation member about plans to kill the president.
Those plans included potential shooting sites in Washington and Kansas City, if the president were to visit there.

A public defender said he had just been assigned Stout’s case and had no comment Tuesday.
The U.S. attorney’s office says Stout remains in federal custody.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Thursday. Stover, Missouri, is about 30 miles southeast of Sedalia.
