KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) The older brother of a 14-year-old Killeen middle school student who threatened to shoot up three local high schools was named in an indictment Wednesday charging terroristic threat/impairment of the public in fear of serious bodily injury.

Cameron Lavonta Garner-Brown, 18, was arrested on Aug. 28 and was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond.

His name did not appear on the Bell County Jail’s online roster Wednesday.

The threat of violence against Ellison, Killeen and Shoemaker high schools appeared on social media at around 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 28.

The source of the post was identified with the help of social media providers, and the unidentified student and Garner-Brown were arrested at around 10:30 p.m. the same day.

The younger boy’s threat to shoot up three local high schools “could have been carried out,” Killeen Police Chief Charles Kimble said during a news conference after the arrests.
