(Newser) – Things keep getting scarier for Erin Andrews: A sick fan apparently told the ESPN reporter that he'd like to see her "dance her way through a hail of gunfire" in one of her appearances on Dancing With the Stars. He adds: "Better yet, I would love to shoot her with a Barrett rifle with a range over a mile." The email, sent late last month and obtained by TMZ, is one of latest in a string of emails that have grown increasingly violent.

The Dancing With the Stars production team has cranked up security to protect Andrews, and the FBI is investigating. Just last week a stalker who secretly filmed Andrews naked was sentenced to more than 2 years in prison.
