THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

After receiving several messages on Wednesday about 'threatening images' posted on social media, the Thomas County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man for terroristic threats.

According to Thomasville Police Department's Facebook page, Kutter Harrison, 20, was arrested. He was booked into the Thomas County Jail on Thursday.

The Thomas County Jail said he was released on his own recognizance just after 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.

A picture of Harrison holding a rifle with a handgun in his pant's waistband was posted on Snapchat with the caption, 'Who else is excited as **** for the race war in Thomasville tomorrow?'

The image was posted as protests continue in Thomasville after a fatal deputy involved shooting that happened on Tuesday.

Herbert Gilbert, 37, was killed in that shooting after drug agents attempted to execute a search warrant. Both the drug agent's and Gilbert's vehicles were involved in the incident somehow. The GBI is handling the investigation into the incident.

In another Facebook post, the Thomasville Police Department asked the community to continue to keep them informed.

The TPD also gave the following statement regarding updates to the investigation of the deputy involved shooting: 

The safety of our community is of the utmost importance. We are unable to provide updates via social media due to maintaining the integrity of the investigations. Please trust that the matters are being taken care of. 

 The police department also thanked the community for, 'Choosing a respectful and peaceful path to voice your concerns.'
