Student Charged With Multiple Felonies After Alleged Online School Threat

KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) – King County prosecutors charged an 18-year-old Kirkland student with two counts of felony harassment for allegedly threatening to kill two classmates.

Prosecutors say the student, a Juanita High School senior, posted a threatening message Sunday on Instagram referencing last month’s school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Kirkland police say he remained in custody as of Tuesday evening with bail set at $99,000.

The King County Superior Court Clerk’s Office said he hadn’t been assigned a lawyer.

Prosecutors say his arraignment was set for June 27.

In his post, the student urged people not to give him a reason for violence, saying school shootings are avoidable if everyone is kind to one another
