Moon did not make threats toward any school, Parks-Schlepp said.

After learning about the threat at First Presbyterian Church later in the morning, and hearing the suspect description, the Memorial High School resource officer looked up Moon's photo and address and provided it to Edmond detectives who, according to police, showed it to church personnel who made a positive ID that the photo matched the description of the person who walked into the church about 8:15 and made verbal threats, Parks-Schlepp said in a news release.

Moon was a student in Edmond Public Schools from August 2005 through August 2012, and graduated from Edmond Memorial High School last spring, according to the news release.
