Felton man claimed to be ‘a killer’ before threatening co-worker with gun, police said

HARRINGTON — A 26-year-old Felton man allegedly claimed to be a killer before getting a handgun from his vehicle and pointing it towards a co-worker during an argument late Monday morning, according to a probable cause affidavit filed by a police detective.

Temporary employee David Frasier was subsequently charged with two felonies after investigation into the reported incident at Kirby and Holloway Meats in Harrington, Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe said. He left the facility at 966 Jackson Ditch Road and later agreed to turn himself in after being contacted by police, authorities said.

Police were called to the scene after a confrontation between Mr. Frasier and a 56-year-old male employee at approximately 10:17 a.m., Cpl. Jaffe said. Investigation determined that Mr. Frasier asked the other man if he had ” … ever looked into a killers eyes?” and continued with “you are looking at one now, I will be right back,” the affidavit stated.

Mr. Frasier, who police said was hired to scrap “cook pots”, was seen on video surveillance leaving the building, walking to his vehicle and getting a black handgun, according to court documents. He then re-entered and went to the room with the co-worker and allegedly began “waving and pointing the firearm in the direction of (name redacted) while yelling “what now, what now.”

According to police, Mr. Frasier then got into his vehicle and left without further incident.

The co-worker reportedly feared for his life during the alleged sequence, police said.

After coming to Troop 3, Mr. Frasier was charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and aggravated menacing.

He was arraigned before Justice of the Peace Court 2 in Rehoboth Beach and released on $20,000 unsecured bond by Magistrate Michelle D. Jewell.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Friday morning.
