CALEDONIA, Miss. (WTVA) - A Caledonia student is charged with making terrorist threats.
Lowndes County Sheriff Mike Arledge said administrators at Caledonia School reported an alleged threat late Monday morning.
A 15-year-old boy allegedly told other students that he "had a list of people he hated" and "was going to shoot them at school,” according to the sheriff.
Lowndes County detectives investigated and charged the student with making terrorist threats under Senate Bill 2141.
According to the law, which went into effect on July 1, a person convicted of making a terroristic threat could face a maximum of 10 years in prison.
The Lowndes County Sheriff's Department did not identify the student.
