LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A teenager is facing charges for allegedly making a threat against Jeffersontown High School.
Jeffersontown Police Chief Rick Sanders said they've arrested 18-year-old David Horsmann for terroristic threatening.
Jeffersontown High School officials sent an email to parents Aug. 11 about the school heightening security due to a possible threat made against the school.
In the email, Principal Jarrad Durham said Kentucky State Police notified the high school about an alleged threat Horsmann made on social media.

He said the threat was made after dismissal Thursday, Aug. 11, the second day of school for all of JCPS.
