A Mandan man has been charged with felony terrorizing and misdemeanor disorderly conduct for threatening to shoot people at a church and social services.

Court documents say 52-year-old Michael Serr entered the church in Mandan around 4 p.m. Tuesday and allegedly threatened to "go home to grab his guns and shoot people."

Church employees told police Serr said he was upset with social services, having believed they removed his children. 

At least one employee reportedly said she thought Serr would carry out his alleged plan to shoot people.

He was arrested Tuesday night and booked at the Burleigh-Morton County Detention Center, pending $1,500 cash bond. Serr is to have no contact with the church.
