Student Arrested For Threats Of Mass Violence

Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

On Tuesday (May 21st) Gaston County Police charged an 18-year-old student at North Gaston High School with Communicating Threats of Mass Violence.

An investigation began Monday after the school administration was made aware of a threat allegation and informed the School Resource Officer. Police say the threat was communicated to several students at the school. A knife and brass knuckles were located in the young man's vehicle which was on the school campus at the time. The student was arrested for Possession of Weapons on State Property (Public School).

After the second charge was added, the bond for the student, who was incarcerated at the Gaston County Jail, was raised from five thousand dollars on the Possession of Weapons on State Property charge to one million dollars on the charge of Communicating Threats of Mass Violence.

Anyone with further information related to this investigation is asked to contact the Gaston County Police Department at 704-866-3320 or Gaston County CrimeStoppers at 704-861-8000.

NOTE: While other media outlets have named the suspect in this case, it is the Lincoln Herald policy not to publish names of persons accused of threats against businesses, schools, etc. since often those who make such threats are seeking publicity.
