West Virginia Man Accused Of Threatening To Shoot Up Middle School Is Behind Bars
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.
Police say the man's message stated the following: “You a b**** I will come up to your school and shoot that b**** up and stop f***ing with my sister," a message that has since been erased online.
Johnson is charged with making threats of terroristic acts, according to WBOY. He is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail on $100,000 bail.
