Texas man arrested after saying he planned on using deadly force at an abortion clinic

A man from Texas named Erlyndon Joseph Lo has been arrested after he filed documents at a federal courthouse in Plano, Texas, which said he planned on using deadly force at an abortion clinic in Texas to stop abortion. Lo is a 27-year-old law school graduate.
Erlyndon Joseph "Joey" Lo, 27, of Plano, filed documents there Friday saying his religious beliefs entitled him to use deadly force to prevent an abortion. He listed the name of a clinic, its address and the time he was going to show up — noon that day....

Clinic employees told authorities a man matching Lo's description showed up weeks earlier with a receipt, asking if his wife had an abortion, according to federal officials. They told him they could not disclose any information or even confirm if an individual was a patient.

It is unclear if Lo is married. Authorities said Monday he lives with his parents.

An article in the Dallas Morning News has a few more details.
Lo's odd behavior during his visits to the clerk's office did not go unnoticed.

"During these visits, Lo exhibited erratic behavior, including raising his voice at members of the clerk's office, obsessively washing his hands in the public restroom and sitting in a court witness room in the dark without authorization to enter the room," the FBI criminal complaint says.

Here's Lo's web site which is basically an unorganized essay where he talks about himself, his religious beliefs and abortion. He also discusses how he challenged Barack Obama to a debate on abortion and is suing the Supreme Court (Chief Justice John Roberts, specifically) to make abortion illegal.
