ALLISON, Iowa – A man accused of threatening to “shoot up” North Butler High School is pleading not guilty.

Andrew Corwin, 19 of Greene, is charged with one count of threat of terrorism. He reportedly made the threat to a student at Charles City High School and it led to a 45-minute lockdown on May 30 at North Butler.

The Butler County Sheriff’s Office says when it questioned Corwin about the statement, he admitted it and said he wouldn’t say anything like that again.

Corwin’s trial is scheduled to begin on August 23. Threat of terrorism is a class “D” felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.
