ST. LOUIS (KMOX/AP) – Prosecutors have charged a third Missouri man with posting online threats to attack a college campus.

Tyler Bradenberg, 19, allegedly posted, “I’m gonna shoot up this school,” on an anonymous messaging app Wednesday.

It was apparently aimed at a Missouri university where he had studied chemical engineering for a semester.

Another 19-year-old, a student at Northwest Missouri State, is accused of threatening online to “shoot any black people.”

And a third man is accused of making online threats against black students and faculty at the University of Missouri in Columbia. He has made his first court appearance and was denied bond.

Nineteen-year-old Hunter M. Park said nothing during Thursday’s court appearance by closed-circuit television from the Boone County jail.

Park is charged with making a terroristic threat.

Boone County Associate Judge Kimberly Shaw sided with a prosecutor in declining a request by Park’s attorney to set bond at $10,000. Shaw ordered Park to remain jailed, pending a Nov. 18 court appearance.

Authorities say the threats showed up Tuesday on the anonymous location-based messaging app Yik Yak and other social media.

A university police officer says Park, when confronted early Wednesday in his Rolla college dorm room, admitted he wrote the postings.
