VAN HORNE, Iowa (AP) - A 17-year-old boy is accused of writing a threatening note on a bathroom wall at a high school in east-central Iowa.

The Benton Community School District on Tuesday sent an email to parents, telling them about the note at Benton Community High School in Van Horne and the resulting increase in security.

The note said the writer was going to blow up the school on Thursday but only after shooting as many people as possible before committing suicide.

The boy was taken into custody and charged with two misdemeanor counts of harassment. The Associated Press generally doesn’t use the names of juveniles accused of crimes.
