Teen accused of threatening shooting at WV high school

MAN — A West Virginia teen is accused of researching armor-piercing ammunition, firearms and police response times to school shootings and then threatening his school.

The Huntington Herald-Dispatch reports 18-year-old David McCoy, of Amherstdale, has been arrested and charged with making terroristic threats. A criminal complaint filed Aug. 30 says students witnessed McCoy researching the shootings.

It says McCoy threatened a Sept. 3 "incident" at the school when another student criticized what McCoy was doing on the school computer. It says a teacher overheard some of the conversation and reported it to the assistant principal, who then notified authorities.

It says McCoy admitted making the searches, but said he didn't remember making any threats. He was suspended for nine days pending expulsion, and released on bail from jail.
