A 17-year-old has been charged with threatening to bomb Worth County High School.

According to court documents, Randy Mills, a student at the school, was reported by other students to be talking about bombing the school. The students allegedly told police that they had been discussing school shootings around the country when Mills said it would be easier to use bombs and proceeded to go into detail of where he would place bombs in the school and how he would go about doing so.

A teacher at the school also told police that during a tornado test, Mills allegedly said he was going to blow up the school.

According to court documents, Mills denied these allegations and said during an interview “thankfully the shooter didn’t use bombs for maximum casualties.”

A warrant has been issued for the teen.

The superintendent of Worth County R3 School district told News-Press NOW that officials followed set plans for matters like this by removing the student from school grounds and contacting the authorities. The superintendent said Mills will be suspended for 180 days as the case proceeds through the court system.
