KATY, Texas (KTRK) -- A 17-year-old high school student was arrested on Tuesday after threatening to shoot up a charter school in Katy, according to the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable's Office.
Deputies from Constable Ted Heap's office arrested a Emanuel Pineda-Flores for threatening to open fire at Calvin Nelms Charter Schools.
Investigators said Pineda-Flores used a fake social media account to post photos of a firearm over the weekend.
In those posts, he made repeated references to his plans about carrying out a school shooting at his previous school in the 20600 block of Clay Road this week, according to deputies.
Pct. 5 deputies were able to identify the suspect and locate him at his current high school, where he was arrested without incident Tuesday morning.
Pineda-Flores has been charged with making a terroristic threat.
After a detailed investigation, deputies said the suspect never intended to follow through on his threats.
Pineda-Flores' bond was set at $50,000, and he's expected in court on Wednesday at 9 a.m.
