Dubuque student charged with yelling threats at school

Posted:

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) -- An 18-year-old Dubuque Senior High School student is facing charges after allegedly running through school hallways and threatening to blow up the school.

Authorities say Adam Sellers was arrested for making threats and faces up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.

Court documents say school officials asked Sellers to leave the building last week. The teenager then allegedly ran through the school hallways and yelled in hallway full of students "I am going to blow this place up," followed by entering a classroom and shouting "I am going to kill someone."

Court documents say Sellers left the building but returned a short time later and his parents were called to come and pick him up.
