WACO, Texas (KWTX) Bonds total $40,000 for a Central Texas teenager charged in connection with social media threats against several local schools.

Moises Eder Martinez, 17, remained in the McLennan County Jail Monday evening charged with two counts of terroristic threat.

He and two other teenagers were detained late last Thursday afternoon in the parking lot University High School at 3201 South New Road in Waco.

The three University High School students were wanted in connection with an aggravated assault on Nov. 18 in the 1200 block of Fisher Street in Bellmead, police Lt. Brenda Kinsey said.

Martinez was released pending further investigation, but was arrested the next day.

The 16-year-old was transferred to Waco police custody and the 15-year-old is facing an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge, Kinsey said.

Police responded to two disturbances on Nov. 18 at the residence.

The first involved a threat in which a gun was displayed and during the second a gun was fired and a window was broken.

Two days later threats were posted on social media making threats against La Vega High School and Waco schools.

“During the investigations it became apparent that these incidents were related,” Kinsey said Monday.
