A 19-year-old man is facing federal charges for making threats against Grant Middle School in federal court.

He will make his first appearance in Judge Jason B. Libby's court at 2 p.m. Friday.

An arrest affadavit for Nathanial Salinas states that Facebook threats he made against a Spanish teacher at the school Oct. 9 were in violation of Title 18, Section 875(c) of the U.S. Penal Code: transmitting in interstate commerce a threat to injure a person.

The school was locked down when the threat was reported Oct. 10. CCISD Police located and arrested Salinas for making a terroristic threat later that day.

The threat reportedly was made when his mother, Marisa Bosman, posted that her minor son was having issues with the Grant Middle School teacher. Salinas responded that "now I'm go to that (expletive) school (sic) shoot them," and followed that post with "First one is gonna be that (expletive) teacher," followed by "jk jk," an abbreviation for "just joking."

If convicted, Salinas faces up to five years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 fine.
