LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man accused of gunning down two people during a homeowners association meeting at a Louisville church is facing new charges.

Police say Mahmoud Hindi was receiving his medication at Metro Corrections on Jan. 1, when he allegedly began threatening to kill corrections officers.

He also allegedly grabbed a cup of water and threw it at one of the officers.

One officer says Hindi made references to their life four times during an interview.

"I am in fear for my life and personal safety due to current charges that have him housed in the facility, and his mental ability to carry out his threats towards me," the officer writes.

Hindi faces third-degree assault and terroristic threatening charges in connection with that incident.

He was already in jail for murder after he was accused of killing David Merritt and Marvin Fisher at a homeowners association meeting at Springdale Community Church in September.
