The Grant County Sheriff’s Office had released a statement which reported its deputies believed a "mass shooting [was] avoided at Gorge Amphitheater."
Following the arrest of a gun-wielding man who they believed "may have had plans to commit a mass shooting" at an electronic music festival in Washington, police released a statement downplaying the suspect's intent.
Jonathan R. Moody, 30, was arraigned following the conclusion of Bass Canyon, an event that annually attracts roughly 25,000 people. The Grant County Sheriff’s Office had released a report on Saturday, August 20th which stated its deputies "believe they stopped an Ephrata man who may have had plans to commit a mass shooting at the Gorge Amphitheater" the day prior.
According to the report, Moody was detained after attendees claimed to have seen him inhaling an "unknown substance or gas from a balloon" before loading and concealing two 9mm pistols around his waist. Police say Moody then approached concert-goers to inquire when the festival would end and where people would exit.
After launching an investigation and interviewing Moody, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office has released a statement clarifying his intent.
