COLUMBUS (WCMH) — An 18-year-old Beechcroft High School student has been formally charged with threatening to kill people in the school.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said Deandre Fleming threatened to shoot up the school and to kill the assistant vice principal, as well as the school safety and security officer.

Fleming faces one count of inducing panic (F2), one count of making a terroristic threat (F3) and two counts of aggravated menacing.
