Cumberland Times reports that a Frostburg State University student has been taken into custody after an investigation confirmed that the 19-year-old gamer issued a threat of “shooting up the school” while playing Call of Duty 4. Shaw faces a maximum penalty of one year jail time and/or a fine of up to $5,000.
Students saw the signs. They saw the two with clubs and knives. Heard their essays and poems about suicide and murder. Heard Harris talk at lunch about blowing up the school.
If it was a provable, credible threat
Charges filed against FSU student following Internet threat
Two misdemeanor counts of disrupting a school operation have been filed against a Frostburg State University student who allegedly made an Internet threat of “shooting up the school,” according to district court documents.
The incident prompted an immediate response from FSU, local law enforcement and the Allegany County Board of Education, which ordered its schools in Frostburg to be in “lock-in” status when they opened at about 8 a.m. In addition, the Eckhart Alternative School was placed on lock-in status and St. Michael School in Frostburg was made aware of the threat of violence at FSU.
State troopers from Allegany, Garrett, Washington and Frederick counties responded to the campus along with Allegany County Sheriff’s Office, Frostburg Police Department and FSU Police, which has an officer assigned to the C3I Unit.
