A black Marine Corps vet went on a months-long, hate-filled screed threatening to “cause mayhem” by gunning down white victims and aspiring to “progress into a serial killer,” federal prosecutors said.

Joshua Cobb, 23, of Trenton, New Jersey, penned a string of online posts and text messages vowing to gun down white people, and boasted he would “probably OD on my own adrenaline after the 10th body goes down,” the US Attorney’s Office in New Jersey said in a release Monday.

“It’s all a f–ing game and you all are going to die,” Cobb allegedly wrote in one text message last year. “I currently lack the means necessary to kill as many as I intend to but one day I will have the available resources (finance) to purchase the appropriate weaponry for my killings.”

In a social media post on Dec. 17, 2022, Cobb allegedly said he had chosen targets for armed attacks.

“I have not chosen a [sic] exact date but I am going to be sure it is close to an important holiday to their race,” prosecutors said he wrote. “I have a location in mind already which I have frequented for the past year and I am certain nobody there is armed to be able to stop me from spraying them to the ground.”

According to an 11-page federal complaint filed Friday, Cobb was grilled by federal agents and admitted that he wrote the messages and detailed sites he had chosen for the attacks.

Those included a Jersey Strong gym and an Aldi grocery store in Robbinsville in Mercer County.

“My rampage will soon happen,” he warned in May 2023, the feds said. “I plan to continue accumulating the necessary equipment needed to execute. Once all equipment is in, time will then tell. You will all die.”

Cobb, who was stationed in California with the Corps, wrote the first message in December 2022 on social media, and continued to post online using the name “1dayUsuffer,” including on TikTok, and in numerous text messages for more than a year, the complaint said.

In one post he said a crossbow was, “My favorite weapon to kill them.”

Last month, federal investigators seized Cobb’s mobile phone and uncovered all off the messages.

If convicted, he faces up to five years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
