February 16, 2018

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia high school student has been charged with making a terrorist threat following a post on Snapchat.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports 18-year-old Corey Michael Duff’s arrest Friday morning follows his alleged posting of a threatening video in the second reported threat against George Washington High School in Charleston in two days.

Charleston Police spokeswoman Lt. Autumn Davis says Duff was under suspension from the school on an unrelated matter and the video was posted Thursday evening.

For the second day, police lined the high school’s entrance Friday morning as students arrived.

Police also investigated a reported threat by a student Wednesday night but say no evidence of an actual threat was found.

Duff is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
