Teen Charged With Making Threat To Penn Hills School District

PENN HILLS (KDKA) — Penn Hills police have filed charges after someone called in a bomb threat to the school district.

Andre Milligaen, 18, of Pittsburgh, was arraigned Thursday afternoon on charges of terroristic threats, threat to use weapons of mass destruction, causing or risking a catastrophe and recklessly endangering another person.

According to police, the initial call came in around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, saying there were six pipe bombs around the school.

About 500 to 600 students were sent to the Fralic Athletic Center during the incident where fights broke out.

Crews searched the school and the grounds for over two hours and did not find any bombs.

    He deserves prison time. That will teach them to stop playing wit this stuff.
    However, I do have one objection to the charges. Weapon of mass destruction? He didn’t say atomic bomb. Just a pipe bomb.

      You are clearly an incompetent idiot. Obviously he is getting jail time. As for your weapons of mass destruction claim? The definition of a weapon of mass destruction is a weapon that can kill and bring significant harm to a large number of human and/or cause great damage to man-made structures, natural structures, or the biosphere in general. That is why that charge is made.

        Sorry, I don’t consider 600 students a large number of human. Nagasaki or Hiroshima – that was a large number of human.

    A pipe bomb is still a bomb and can do MASSive DESTRUCTION. He is 18 (according to reports) and (luckily) won’t go through the Juvie system. But hey, I’m sure he’s a “good boy who goes to church every Sunday.” Yeah…ok.

    How stupid do you have to be to call from a CELL phone! Damn, I love stupid people! hahaha.
