Patrick Joseph Hudson was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat.

A Texas man accused of threatening to massacre schoolchildren and stream it over the Internet was charged with making a terroristic threat Wednesday after police were notified about the postings, MyFoxHouston.com reported.

Investigators traced user SS_Patrick's posts on Overclock.net to Patrick Joseph Hudson, 19, who works at an Office Max. When met by authorities, he admitted to making the threats, but said they were a joke and merely referencing a song lyric, the station reported, citing court papers.

SUMMARY

  • Texas man accused of threatening to shoot school children and stream it live
  • Tells police the Internet posts were a joke
  • Schools say not children were in danger

The FBI told HoustonPress.com that the threat did not specify a particular school.

One of the posts reportedly read, "What better way to go out with a bang than killing a bunch of little kids.

"Don't want to live through the trails (sic) and jaile (sic)….so I off myself in the classroom."

He said he would leave a few alive so they would never grow up correctly. He also expressed interest in live-streaming the shooting and asked other users if they knew how to stream from a Go Pro Camera.

Investigators traced SS_Patrick to Hudson, who was living with his mother in Katy, Texas. Hudson's mother helped investigators get on the phone with him and set up a meeting at an Office Max.

School officials said they were aware of the threat and no students were in danger, HoustonPress.com reported.

Hudson’s bond was set at $100,000.
