A Houston-area teenager is facing a terrorist charge after allegedly posting Facebook messages threatening to kill people in Splendora, officials said this weekend.
A citywide alert was issued Saturday after police picked up the anonymous messages. One example released to the public by district attorneys read, "I'm going to kill everybody in Splendora on July 13th."
Several threats were sent out, according to constables at Montgomery County Precinct 4, which led the investigation.
The messages were first brought to the attention of authories by a woman from Beaumont whose child was scheduled to compete in a sports tournament in town over the weekend, Constable Kenneth Hayden of Precinct 4 told the Montgomery County Police Reporter.
"She wanted to know if he would be safe, because she'd heard about the threat," he said. "Another lady called and said she heard about the threat and went to stay with family in Cleveland, but she had a birthday party to attend in Splendora Sunday and she wanted to know if it was safe to return."
The messages prompted widespread concern with officials at some local events requesting extra police presence.
