Man arrested after church threats
An Edmond man was arrested Monday morning after he walked into First Presbyterian Church, 1001 S Rankin, and made threats to kill the employees, police said. Michael Seockjin Moon, 18, was found at the Edmond Racquet Club, 425 Lilac Drive, about an hour later, police spokeswoman Jennifer Monroe said. He was arrested on a felony assault complaint. Before going to the church, Moon went to Edmond Memorial High School about 7:20 a.m. and asked to speak to a former teacher but was turned away because he did not have an appointment, school district spokeswoman Susan Parks-Schlepp said. Moon left the building without incident, but the school’s police resource officer was alerted because of his demeanor, she said. Edmond’s Central Middle School, 500 E Ninth St., was on lockdown while police searched for the suspect. Moon was a student in the Edmond Public Schools from August 2005 through August 2012, and graduated from Edmond Memorial High School last spring, Parks-Schlepp said.
