HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) - It was a "walk of shame" for Lorenzo Luna, on his way to his arraignment where he was accused of offense terroristic threat times three, a third degree felony.

A probable cause compliant reveals that Luna text messaged a female student about the bomb threat the day it happened.

"She started getting the text messages during the building evacuation and she thought that was very strange when hardly anyone knew of the threats," said Judge Bob Richardson. "So, apparently it was the first one."

Police managed to trace the third bomb threat call, which lead them here, to Luna's Henderson home. But, it turns out, Luna had made a threat at the high school when he attended in 2007.

"He had threatened to bring a gun when he was last at school but he never did," said Lt. Craig Sweeney, with Henderson police.

Henderson ISD expelled Luna for the threat, raising the question: Are these threats retaliation?

"From what I understand with interviews, it wasn't to do with any retaliation or anything like he was mad at the school system for what happened when he left the school," said Sweeney.

For the school, they're just glad that the threats turned out to be just words.

"When we received the threats we had no choice but to protect our students and we will do that every time," said Stacey Sullivan, the communications director for Henderson High School.

And, hopefully this time, will be the last.

Luna's bond was set at $75,000 for all three counts.

Right now, police say they have no motive for the threats. Henderson High School says it wants to assure parents their kids are safe. The school says it has 24 hour surveillance on campus.
