Fort Bend Teen Charged With Terroristic Threat

Another Fort Bend juvenile has been arrested because of a terroristic threat.

That's the third now is the suburban Houston county since the Florida mass shootings.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office was notified Wednesday by Harmony Public School in the Katy area of a second possible threat to its campus.

A 15-year-old -- someone who's a friend of the 15-year-old who was arrested last Friday, posted on Snapchat, “You think you’ve seen a threat, I’ll show you a threat.”

The posting was a caption on a black screen.

According to the FBSO, the suspect stated he was mad about his friend being arrested. He later posted on his Snapchat story a video of himself at a gun range shooting an AR-15 and two Glocks.

Peers of the suspect alerted administration. The 15-year-old juvenile was arrested on campus and charged with making a terroristic threat, which is a third-degree felony.

That juvenile is now in the Fort Bend County juvenile detention facility.

"This is not a game or a way to get attention," Sheriff Troy Nehls said. “I once again urge parents to have a conversation with their children regarding the seriousness of threatening posts.”
