EAST ST. LOUIS, IL (KMOX) – Bond is set at 100 thousand dollars for an East St. Louis man accused of threatening to open fire on a school bus stop in Shiloh, Illinois.

27-year-old Theron Hubbard is charged with one count of making a terrorist threat and one count of phone harassment.

Police say Hubbard sent nearly 300 text messages to the friend of his estranged wife last week, threatening to shoot the friend’s children at the bus stop and any other children who might be there.

Police say after Friday’s arraignment, Hubbard tried to escape by kicking out a window of a police car, slightly injuring officers. He’s expected to face additional charges.
