An Ankeny teenager was arrested early Sunday after allegedly threatening to shoot all the students at the Waukee High School.
Isaac Quinton Holtz, 19, of 1012 S.W. 28th St., #403, Ankeny, was charged with threat of terrorism.
According to court records, Holtz sent an email on Sunday to all school staff members and two students in which he allegedly “threatened to come to school with a gun and shoot all the students.”
He also said in the email that “during fourth block, he will go into the locker room for girls and rape and murder all of them, then take over the school with beer and shoot it up some more.”
School authorities alerted law enforcement, including identifying Holtz as the likely source of the email “due to prior emails that he has sent” because “some of the same words were misspelled and fall in line with prior threats that were made by the defendant earlier this year.”
School authorities also told the Waukee Police Department that Holtz also allegedly “left a four-minute rambling phone call” at the school on Friday, “talking about an individual with a Waukee shirt on with a gun.”
Officers of the Waukee Police Department made contact with Holtz about 3:30 a.m. Sunday outside his Ankeny apartment, and “he admitted that he had sent out the email and said there were 760 recipients of the email.”
Holtz is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
