CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Pennsylvania State Police have seized a computer from the Chambersburg-area home of a person believed responsible for posting a death threat against Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin on a hockey message board.
Police refused to identify the owner of the computer. Other media have reported the poster as a Chambersburg teenager.
Police said the message was posted on a Pittsburgh Penguins message board.
In the message, the poster bragged he was going to kill Ovechkin and did not care if he went to jail.
The post made against Ovechkin is under investigation by the Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Investigation Computer Crimes Section in Indiana, Pa., according to Pennsylvania State Police in Chambersburg.
The laptop computer seized Wednesday night from a home on Newcomer Road in Guilford Township is believed to be connected to the incident, police said.
