Ex-Employee Threatened Workplace Violence, Pinellas Deputies Say
He made the threats in emails to his attorney, Pinellas deputies said.
PINELLAS COUNTY – A St. Petersburg man is in jail after he sent an email to his attorney threatening to kill people at his former job, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Dorian Robert Golej, 31, of St. Petersburg, was charged with one count of Threatening Communications or Threats of Mass Shooting. Golej met the criteria for a Baker Act and a Risk Protection Order was also completed, according to deputies.
About 9:39 a.m. Monday (April 8), deputies were called to Raytheon Corp. at 7887 Bryan Dairy Road in Seminole, for reports of threats being made by a former employee by email.
According to deputies, Golej, sent multiple emails to his attorney between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. Monday, making credible threats of workplace violence. According to the emails, Golej’s stated, “No choice but to contemplate killing. I probably would have slaughtered everything one day, I think about it every day.”
Deputies said Golej was fired from Raytheon on March 21 after the company completed an internal investigation for creating a hostile work environment.
Upon seeing the emails, Golej’s attorney contacted Raytheon security to notify them of the threats. Raytheon locked down the facility for safety, while deputies conducted their threat assessment.
After determining the Raytheon campus was safe, deputies went to Golej’s home in St. Petersburg. Deputies said Golej refused to come out of his home and would not speak with deputies, despite numerous tries.
Golej eventually exited his residence voluntarily and was taken into custody.
Once in custody, Golej admitted to emailing the threatening statements to his attorney and said, “I feel like killing him, I would have slaughtered that place, turn it into a bloodbath.”
