  • A 26-year-old Wilmington man is facing criminal charges after allegedly threatening to shoot a security officer at the Amazon Fulfillment Center in Middletown on Sunday.
    Jarryl Peterson made the threats about 2 p.m., after the 40-year-old security guard warned him about speeding through the parking lot of the year-old fulfillment center parking lot at 560 Merrimac Avenue, according to police.
    Peterson is not an employee of Amazon but reportedly was picking someone up from the year-old distribution center when the argument began.
    During the confrontation, Peterson allegedly got out of his vehicle and retrieved an unidentified item that resembled a handgun from his trunk while threatening to shoot the security guard, who then called police.
    Peterson is charged with aggravated menacing and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony.
    He later was released after posting an undisclosed bail amount.
