GRANT COUNTY, Wash. – On Friday, August 19, 2022, Grant County lawmakers believe they may have committed a mass shooting at a concert in the Gorge Amphitheater after the arrest of a suspect in possession of two guns.
This was announced by the Grant County Sheriff’s OfficeJonathan R. Moody, 30, was arrested outside the venue after deputies found two loaded 9mm handguns on him. He was sent to the Grant County Jail on suspicion of possession of a dangerous weapon and unlawful carrying or handling of a weapon.
The sheriff’s office said witnesses at the venue notified deputies around 9 p.m. after noticing the suspect inhaled an unknown substance from a balloon and then loaded the two pistols from the trunk of his car. According to police, Moody then hid the guns behind his belt and a holster outside his belt.
Witnesses further reported that Moody approached concert-goers and asked them when the show was ending and where people were leaving the theater.
Police said Moody never entered the venue. Security forces held him at the gates and disarmed him. After investigation, the deputies arrested him and sent him to the Grant County Jail.
In a Facebook post, the sheriff’s office noted that last night’s concert series, Bass Canyon, sold out, meaning more than 25,000 people attended. Deputies said Moody’s possession of guns, inhalation of a poison and questioning concert-goers raised enough suspicion to warrant his arrest.
According to the sheriff, no one was injured in the arrest. The sheriff’s office thanked concert-goers for reporting the suspect’s activities.
