Mississippi Man Arrested for Planning ‘Mass Murder’ at His Church

A Mississippi man has been arrested after he allegedly claimed to have planned a mass murder at his church, according to police.

Lee County Sheriff’s (LCS) Department said officers went to the home of Ryan C. Evans, 20, on November 12 after they received a tip from the FBI about a “credible” threat to commit mass murder at a church.

In a Facebook post shared on Monday, an LCS spokesperson said: “The information received from the FBI was deemed credible and the Lee County Sheriff’s Department immediately began investigating the threat.

“Upon further investigation, it was determined an individual made a comment on a social media platform that he was planning ‘a mass murder’ at his church the next Sunday. The post was not specific as to which church, just that it was his church.”

The LCS’s statement, seen by Newsweek, continued: “Acting on the information gathered from the FBI top and investigation, it was determined the individual residing in the Saltillo area.”

Investigators and deputies then went to Evans’ home where they executed an arrest warrant and took him into custody without incident.

Evans was then charged with making a terroristic threat and Judge Chuck Hopkins set his bond at $100,000.
