LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — The Louisville teen charged with terroristic threatening in connection with threats on Facebook regarding Thunder Over Louisville pleaded not guilty in arraignment court.
 
Eighteen-year-old Cameron Malone was arrested Wednesday. Police said he admitted to investigators that he posted threatening messages on Facebook about the annual fireworks show and pictures of handguns in a plastic tub.

The first post dates back to March 27, and the second post came on April 1.

One of the posts stated, "That so much killing going on.”

WHAS11 did do a Google Image search of the picture attached to the posts and found the exact same picture of guns linked to a big drug arrest in Minnesota dating back to 2009.
 
A competency hearing is expected to take place before Malone’s court date set on April 14 at 9 a.m.
 
Malone was also served with two bench warrants during his arraignment; one for criminal trespass first and the other for possession of marijuana.

Bond is set for Malone for $50,000 full cash bond.

LMPD thanked concerned citizens for bringing the post to their attention on their Facebook page.
