WACO, TX — A 17-year-old has has been arrested for making terroristic threats against La Vega and another Waco school on social media.

On November 22, police arrested Moises Martinez, 17, for threats related to the posts.

Multiple messages were posted to social media making threats against La Vega High School and "various other schools" in Waco, according to Bellmead police.

After further investigation, it became apparent all the threats were related.

Police also say they were called out for two incidences involving gunfire the week of November 18, both times at the same location on Fisher Street in Bellmead.

The first call involved threats being made and a gun was displayed. When police responded the next time, it was because someone had fired a gun at the front of the house, breaking a window.

On November 21, Bellmead Detectives say three people were detained at University High School.

After questioning them, one male student was arrested for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Another adult male was released, pending further investigation.

The third male was turned over to Waco police on unrelated charges.

Moises Martinez is being held in McLennan County Jail on a $40,000 bond.

He is charged with making two terroristic threats, one charge based in Waco, stemming from a threat made against a Waco school, and another in Bellmead, for the threat made against La Vega.
