Conval Student Charged With School Shooting Threat In Jail Without Bail
A Conval Regional High School student allegedly involved in a school shooting threat last week is being held without bond in a Manchester jail.
According to police, Anthony Wheeler of Antrim posted a picture on Snapchat last week of another Conval student dressed up like one of the Columbine school shooters and holding guns.
A caption read: "Don’t go to school on Wednesday."
Police have not revealed whether the guns in the photo were real, but all district schools were closed on Wednesday as a result.
Wheeler, who is 18, is charged with three felony-level counts of criminal threatening.
Each count could bring up to 7 years in prison and $4,000 in fines.
A court official said Wheeler will be in jail at least until his next hearing on January 14th.
Two other students involved are under 18, and their identities have not been made public.
