COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee teenager has been arrested after an Internet posting in which authorities said he threatened to go on a shooting rampage and made reference to the Connecticut school shooting.
According to The Daily Herald, 19-year-old Shawn Lenz was charged Sunday with terrorism, harassment and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Maury County Sheriff's Capt. Jimmy Tennyson said Lenz posted on a Facebook account that he felt like "going on a rampage" and wrote of the killing of 20 children and 6 teachers Friday in Newtown, Conn.
Lenz was arrested after several calls were made to 911 and a woman filed a complaint at the sheriff's department.
Lenz was held Monday in lieu of $760,000 bond at the Maury County Jail. There was no record of an attorney for him.
