A man was arrested for making threats at a mall in Montgomery County on Tuesday just days after a shooting at a mall in neighboring Howard County that left three people dead, including the gunman.
Maryland State Police say a man was taken into custody at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda after threatening to kill workers at a luggage store. George Hong Sik Chin, 31, of Rockville was taken into custody last night and was being held for an emergency evaluation.
Employees at the Tumi luggage store told police that Chin became aggressive, complaining about the prices and saying he was going to kill them.
When police found Chin at the mall, they say he made rambling statements, saying he had not taken his prescribed medication.
Police say Chin did not assault anyone and no weapons were found on him or in his truck. Police say a small amount of suspected marijuana was found in his truck and drug charges are pending.
