SEDALIA — A Sedalia high school student is facing charges after allegedly saying he planned to bring a gun to school and "kill everyone."

Perry L. Crabb,17, was arrested Monday at Whittier High School and was charged Tuesday as an adult with making a terrorist threat.

According to witness statements, Crabb allegedly told four students he was "going to bring a gun to the school and kill everyone, and then he was going to kill himself."

According to a probable cause statement, Crabb also told authorities he was only acting out of anger and did not intend the statements to be threatening.

He was released on bond and ordered not to enter school district property.

If convicted, Crabb could face up to four years in prison.
