Washington, May 30: The attention of law enforcement officials was drawn to Times Observer newspaper advertisement that erroneously suggested that President Barack Obama could be assassinated just as four of his predecessors had been.

The ad representative didn't make the connection among the four other presidents mentioned and mistakenly allowed the ad to run.

Upon realizing the mistake early Thursday morning, the ad was immediately discontinued and the identity of the person who placed the ad was turned over to Warren City Police as per newspaper policy, Politico reports.

The local police department forwarded the information to federal authorities, as per department policy.

The Times Observer apologized for the oversight.
