On May 14, Austin Police arrested Ellis Ingram IV
on "terroristic threat" charges for making a series of eight 911 phone calls threatening to kill police. Ingram made the first call shortly before 11pm on May 11, the same day 18-year-old Nathaniel Sanders
was killed by police in the parking lot of the Walnut Creek Apartments on Springdale near Manor Road. In that call, Ingram allegedly told the 911 call-taker that there was an "officer down" at the complex, following up with a threat to kill any officers who would respond. Ingram then allegedly made seven additional calls on May 13, each threatening to kill police. Recordings of the calls make it clear that the threats are retaliatory in nature. "You bitches gonna learn," Ingram allegedly said. "This is our time, bitch, time to bust back." Ingram, who police say is a documented member of the Bloods, was arrested on a $50,000 bond. Making a terroristic threat is a third-degree felony, punishable by two to 10 years in prison.
