BALTIMORE (AP) — Authorities say a Maryland teenager has been arrested and charged with threatening mass violence.
Montgomery County police have identified the teen as Luis Amilcar Cabrera, a former student of Bethesda’s Walter Johnson High School. He’s 18 and was being held without bond.
A Saturday police statement says Cabrera posted a photo on social media showing him holding an AR-15 rifle with the words:
“School shooter.” Police say several students have also reported that Cabrera has posted messages about hating the school and threats to “shoot up” the place.
Detectives obtained a warrant for Cabrera’s arrest, citing threats and recent photographs. He was charged on Friday.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Cabrera had a lawyer. Calls made to what appeared to be his family’s Rockville address went unanswered.
