Man sought in robbery, shooting death of 68-year-old woman


Authorities in Walton County are seeking a 30-year-old man in connection with the robbery and shooting death of a 68-year-old woman.

A murder warrant was issued Wednesday for Sergio R. Moon, considered armed and dangerous, Monroe police said on Facebook.

Shortly before 2:45 p.m., officers responded to an armed robbery call with a person being shot at an apartment in the 100 block of West Marable Street, according to the post.

“Upon arrival, officers discovered 68-year-old Linda O. Flint on the floor, bleeding profusely,” police said. “Ms. Flint was transported to Piedmont Walton Hospital where she later died.”

Moon is described as 5-foot-11 and about 150 pounds with black hair and hazel eyes.

The GBI has processed the scene, and the Walton County District Attorney’s office is also involved in the investigation.

People who see Moon are advised not to approach him but to call 911.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Det. Chris Cannon at ccannon@monroega.gov or 770-266-5183 or 770-267-7576.
