A Roane County, WV man is in jail after authorities said he threatened to shoot up a school.

Shayne Workman, 34, has been charged with making a terroristic threat.  Deputies with the Roane County Sheriff's Department served a domestic violence order to Workman on Thursday.

In the petition, there were Facebook postings attached from Workman's page, court documents show.  Deputies were concerned with one specific post on August 26.  Part of the post said, "that is grabbing a gun and clearing a classroom, and would leave me alive and free to continue my work," deputies said.

Workman's wife filed the petition the next day after she saw the post, deputies said.

Workman has been charged with making a terrorist threat.  He's in the Central Regional Jail with bail set at $150,000.
