BOSSIER CITY, LA (FOX-KMSS) -- A Bossier City teenager was taken into custody Friday afternoon for allegedly threatening to blow up his school and kill other students.

Damian Moon, 18, of Bossier City, admitted to Bossier detectives he threatened to kill other students and blow up Airline High School.

Sheriff Whittington credits the swift action of the school resource officer in investigating the matter quickly and developing information leading to Moon’s arrest in order to keep students and the school safe.

“Threats of this nature will be taken very seriously, and I encourage anyone who ever hears or knows of such threats to immediately contact authorities,” Sheriff Whittington said. “We will not tolerate anyone causing havoc, fear or terror in our schools, businesses, homes or anywhere.”

Authorities will use a search warrant on Moon's cellphone and computer.

Moon was booked in the Bossier Maximum Security Facility Friday afternoon.

Terrorizing carries a fine of not more than $15,000 or imprisonment with or without hard labor for not more than 15 years, or both.
