An Oneida man has been charged with threatening to kill a Green Bay Police officer who shot and killed a man at the Brown County Jail.

Elliot Dean Wilber, 33, is charged in Brown County with a count of Threat to a Law Enforcement Officer.

A criminal complaint obtained by Action 2 News states police were alerted to video Wilber had posted on YouTube regarding the Oct. 19 shooting of Jonathon Tubby. Tubby was shot and killed by Green Bay Police Officer Erik O'Brien

An officer found a video in which Wilber says his friend Jonathon was shot by police at the jail.

"Nobody's gonna do anything about this, well then m---f---rs, there's going to be something being done," Wilber says in the video. "The families will be killed. I don't give a f---. This is Elliot Wilber. I'm going to kill the f---ing cop. I will start going hostile on all these m---f---rs around here."

Police recorded the video, which was removed from YouTube on Oct. 30.

Wilber had warrants out for his arrest and officers started checking addresses for him. On Oct. 31, police and the department's Bearcat vehicle responded to a home in the 500 block of Kellogg St. Elliot Wilber came out with his hands in the air.

Wilber was struggling to keep his balance. The complaint states Wilber told officers that he believed he had overdosed on meth.

Police used Narcan to revive him and Wilber was taken to a hospital of treatment.

The complaint states Wilber told officers that he had an AK-47 and had planned to confront officers with it. The reason he didn't: he had taken too many drugs and was unable to.

Police went back to the Kellogg St home and located the person on the lease. That individual confirmed that there was a loaded AK-47 inside the home.

The shooting of Jonathon Tubby remains under investigation by the Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation.

Officer Erik O'Brien was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

A "Justice for Jonathon" event is being held the evening of Nov. 2 on Green Bay's City Deck. The event starts at 7:30 p.m.
