EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A 19-year-old man who police said made threats on Twitter to “shoot up” an Evansville high school has pleaded guilty to felony charges.

Anthony Wolfe Jr. of Evansville made the plea in a Vanderburgh County court to charges of intimidation and criminal gang activity.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports Wolfe was arrested last year after making verbal threats and then posting on Twitter that something bad was going to happen at Harrison High School.

Wolfe faces the possibility of six months to three years in prison on each charge when he’s sentenced in April.
