CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — A 19-year-old man is facing serious charges after he allegedly made a threat against Grant Middle School.

Police said Nathanial Salinas posted on social media he wanted to shoot the facility.

CCISD police chief Kirby Warnke said investigators saw the threat and eventually determined Salinas wrote it. Because of the danger, the middle school went into a modified lockdown Thursday.

The threat was made late Wednesday evening, according to a Facebook post sent by principal Carla Rosa-Villarreal on Thursday morning.

She immediately contacted CCISD police, who began a formal investigation.

Salinas is facing terroristic threat charges along with hindering an investigation. His bond was set at $10,000.

As of Friday afternoon, Salinas was still behind bars over at the Nueces County Jail.
