MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A judge has denied bail for a Georgia Tech student accused of threatening to bomb a middle school and shoot any survivors.

News outlets reported that 18-year-old Andrew Sean Brady, of Austell, appeared in court Wednesday and was ordered to continue to be held without bond. Authorities say Brady emailed the threats to Floyd Middle School workers last month and was arrested days later on charges including terroristic threats.

The Cobb County School District released a statement saying local and state law enforcement were investigating the threat. Brady’s connection to the school is unclear. Authorities say no explosives were found in a search of his home and car.

Georgia Tech spokesman Lance Wallace confirmed in an email Thursday that Brady is a student.

It’s unclear if Brady has a lawyer.
