Magnolia police have released more information about a series of disturbances on Saturday that led to Internet rumors about a mass murder in the city.

Montez Donyaya Moddies, 24, of Magnolia was involved in a number of altercations on Saturday. Police received calls about a fight on Jack Street. Moddies was identified as the suspect in that incident, although he was not arrested until Saturday evening when reports of shots fired and another fight occurring at Jeanette and Magnolia streets were given to police.

Officers arrived and arrested Moddies.

Moddies is in the Columbia County Justice and Detention Facility, charged with terroristic threatening in the first degree after he made a threat that he would kill someone.

There were no injuries as a result of the disturbances.

Coincidentally, the Magnolia Police Department and the Columbia County Sheriff's Office participating in a joint effort to saturate certain neighborhoods with increased patrols and safety checkpoints. The police department said that during this time, Central Dispatch received an unusually high number of telephone calls making references to shots fire, fights and disturbances. Additional units already in the city made faster and larger law enforcement responses possible.
