Montana man accused of threat against Wyoming school

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) _ Police say a 19-year-old Montana man has been arrested for making threats against a school in Gillette, Wyo.

Missoula County Sheriff's Detective Jason Johnson says Erik Sven Wengren was arrested Friday and charged with disorderly conduct.

Johnson says Wengren made multiple threats on Facebook that he was going to the school to shoot people. He told people who responded to him on the website that he was not kidding.

However, Johnson says Wengren told sheriff's detectives that he was joking.

The Missoulian reports Wengren has a relative who attends the Wyoming school.

Wengren is scheduled to appear Thursday in Missoula Justice Court.
