Young man who celebrated attack in Uvalde, Texas has been charged with terrorist threat

A young man who celebrated the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, has been charged with a terrorist threat.


R, Gelfenstein — Joshua Adam Bowen, 19, of Arizona, was charged Sunday with bail set at $150,000, the Casa Grande Police Department said in a statement posted on its Facebook page. The juvenile remains at the Pinal County Adult Detention Center.

The police department was contacted by the FBI following Bowen's online comments following the shooting at Robb Elementary School.

"There's no doubt in my mind that this individual intended to hurt people and would ultimately have found a way to do that," he said.

In addition to celebrating the shooting in Uvalde, the boy threatened several people during a mass shooting at a local school, police station and movie theater. In addition, the detainee allegedly threatened friends and family.

Although authorities did not find weapons when they intervened with the suspect, investigators have information indicating that he might have access to them.
