A 13-year-old Mount Pleasant, S.C. teen has been charged with a 15-year felony terrorism charge in his home state after he emailed a false bomb threat to Covenant Christian School on January 19th of this year. The boy was involved in online gaming with two local teens, one of which was targeted as a victim.
The three young teens interacted at some point while online gaming before the threat was received at the school. The threat stated that the targeted teen had a bomb in a backpack.
Another bomb threat situation took place at Mason County Eastern School on January 29th of this year. So far no links between the two threats and the state and nationwide automated rash of bomb threats has been made.
