LI teen accused of making terrorist threat
Police arrested a Massapequa teen Friday who they say made a terrorist threat against a local school.
According to authorities, the suspect, 17-year-old Nathan Myres, said he planned to go on a shooting spree at Plainedge High School on April 20, the anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre.
The motive behind Myres' alleged plan remains unknown, but police say he is a former Plainedge High School student.
Investigators found out about the alleged threat after rumors started going around school. They interviewed several students who allegedly heard first-hand from Myres about his plot.
Myres was charged with making a terrorist threat and arraigned in Hempstead. His bail is set at $25,000.
