LEAVENWORTH, Kansas - A man admitted in court Wednesday to using an intercom to
threaten shoppers inside a Leavenworth K-Mart.
The incident happened May 22.

S 4th St Trafficway, with a handgun concealed in his coat.
Oliver Gillom Jr., announced over a K-Mart intercom that he was
going to kill somebody and whoever didn’t want to die should
leave the store immediately.
