A West Virginia man is behind bars after allegedly threatening to shoot up a school.
Seth Johnson, 22, of Albright, W.Va., was arrested recently for allegedly making the threat over social media. Police say Johnson sent a message to a juvenile at Bruceton School, a middle school in Bruceton Mills.
Police say they were advised of the threat on Jan. 4. A Bruceton School official provided the threat to authorities, according to deputies.
