A Harrison Township teen has been charged with threatening to kill several of his classmates, officials said Friday.

Shane Joseph Robinson, 17, was formally charged Friday in a Clinton Township district court with making a false report or threat of terrorism, a 20-year felony.

A magistrate set Robinson's bond at $150,000 and ordered him placed under house arrest if he posts bail. He also ordered him to wear a GPS tether, not to have any contact with his school and banned him from possessing or purchasing any weapons.

Robinson is scheduled to appear next in court on March 28 for a probable cause conference, officials said.

Authorities said sheriff's deputies were called to the homes of several L'Anse Creuse High School students for a report that a classmate threatened to kill everyone in a classroom on March 13.

Detectives interviewed students. They also searched Robinson's home, but found no weapons, officials said.

During interviews with Robinson, he referred to himself as "demonic," expressed his dislike for popular kids and admitted to threatening to sew a classmate's mouth shut. He also admitted to telling a classmate he was going to stab him.

Police said school officials were contacted and are fully cooperating with the investigation.

Detectives presented their findings to the county prosecutor's office, which issued a warrant against Robinson on the charges.
