ST. LOUIS — A 17-year-old student accused of threatening to shoot students at an eastern Missouri high school faces a felony charge.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the teenager was charged Wednesday with making a terrorist threat. The suspect has been released on $25,000 cash-only bond and ordered not to be on Lincoln County school property or have any contact with school officials.
A lawyer for the teenager did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment Friday.
Police said they began investigating the teen earlier this week when a student told a school official the suspect had threatened to shoot several students Wednesday.
Lincoln County Sheriff Mike Krigbaum asked for lockdowns Wednesday at three Troy schools. Each school was on lockdown for about 25 minutes until police found the teenager.
