DUNCAN, Okla. (TNN) - A student in Duncan has been charged with a terrorism hoax after investigators say he threatened to shoot up Duncan High School.

Investigators say 18-year-old Brandon Hays had threatened to wear a leather jacket while blaring music and open fire on the school.

According to court documents, he told people quote, “everyone thinks I’m going to be the next school bomber. Maybe I should be,” and said that he could get bombing materials.

When police interviewed him, he told them it was a joke but realized people could take it as a threat, and denied the statements about shooting and bombing material.

He’s booked in the Stephens County Jail on $500,000 bond.
