Teen brings sword to school
Now faces terror threat charges
SAN ANTONIO - A Brandeis High School student is facing some serious charges after district officials say he ground a sword to campus.
Northside Independent School District said that the sword was a collector’s replica, but had a 15-inch blade and is still considered a weapon.
Officials say the boy approached a group of students on campus before school Thursday morning and threatened one of them with a sword.
He now faces charges of making a terroristic threat and possessing an illegal weapon on school property.
