SAPD: Man charged with threatening to shoot people at two area parochial schools

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A San Antonio man is facing charges of making terroristic threats against two area parochial schools.

Investigators say Hayden Taylor Kuwamura made the threats while he was at St. Mary’s Hall last week, and they say the threats were made against that campus and Central Catholic High School.

Kuwamura, 25, was arrested Friday night and police say he will be fitted with a GPS tracker after he posted bond Monday night.

Central Catholic High School has issued a statement clarifying that Kuwamura was not on that campus last week when police say the threats were made.

“Central Catholic High School has been made aware of the arrest of a young man for alleged terroristic threats. The threats were made to a St. Mary’s Hall employee following a visit to their campus. CCHS was notified as the young man made provocative statements about CCHS as well. We are cooperating fully with San Antonio Police.

At NO time last week was this person on, near, or approaching the Central Catholic campus and the safety of CCHS students was never at risk. We can confirm that the individual is a 2016 graduate and did stop by Central Catholic last month while students were out for summer break. His behavior at the time was non-threatening. His request for a tour did not raise concerns with staff because our campus has had a number of facility additions and renovations since this individual graduated.

CCHS takes campus security and the safety of our students and staff seriously. We have made extensive updates and additions to our security plan and infrastructure over the past several years and added more cameras and additional security gates over the summer. We will be augmenting security measures for the foreseeable future out of an abundance of caution.” – Jason Longoria, President of Central Catholic High School

A witness tells police Kuwamura threatened coaches at both schools and also showed pictures of guns he said were in his car. Investigators say the witness reported Kuwamura intended to get tattoos to tally each person he killed.
