Police took an Edgewater man into custody after patrons of a Giant Food store said he made threats to kill them.
A further investigation revealed that 56-year-old Kirk Green had guns and ammunition in his car. Police said they're fairly confident that there was no planned attack. They said they are dealing with more of a mental health situation.
According to charging documents, witnesses said Green was saying, "I own you and the government. I can kill people. I can kill everyone. I can take my knife out and stab anyone here. I could take my gun out and kill you."
his roomie said he'd been seeing a doctor "on and off" in Baltimore, but that he wasn't on any meds.
Police didn't find anything in Green's room, so they got a warrant for his car, which was parked in the Giant parking lot. Inside the car, they found a rifle and a shotgun with ammunition, along with some notes that read, in part, "Take back the land" and "Take back territories."
Police said they also found threats to government agencies: "Keep track of targets = everything dead -- NSA, CIA, FBI, Secret Service, DOD, IRS, Social Security, NASA, State Department, White House, Maryland state attorney, House of Representatives, Navy."

They took him to a hospital.
Police searched Green's vehicle Monday and discovered a Marlin 30-30 lever-action rifle and a Benelli 12-gauge shotgun. Investigators also found boxes of ammunition, earplugs and a brown leather briefcase.
Inside the briefcase investigators found numerous handwritten pages and documents containing government officials' private information, telephone numbers, office addresses and a log of attempts to contact those government officials, police said. The officials weren't named in charging documents.
Green also wrote: "Keep track of targets = everything dead – NSA, CIA, FBI, Secret Service, DOD, IRS, Ssec, NASA, State Dept., White House, MD State Attorney, House of Rep, Navy," charging documents state.
There were multiple written accounts of Green attempting to contact government agencies, police said, and "take back territories" he believed belong to him.

Handwritten plans for the purchase of firearms were found, too, police said, plus receipts for the firearms and ammunition recovered from Green's vehicle.
He wasn't allowed to own a gun.
