A Jourdanton High School student is behind bars on a charge of making terroristic threats.

Jourdanton police say the student threatened to commit acts of violence with a firearm on school district property and he showed other students pictures of an AK-47 that he had access to.

According to the Jourdanton Police Department’s Facebook page, the student was arrested Tuesday afternoon and booked in the Atascosa County Jail. Bond is set at $250,000. If convicted, he could get 2 to 10 years in prison.

No firearm was found on school district property, but police say administrators and police “treat any threat of violence to our schools very seriously, and will use every asset available to keep our campuses safe for students, staff and visitors.”

Jourdanton is about 42 miles south of San Antonio.
