Expelled Port Neches-Groves student indicted in school shooting threat

Triston Miller, a now expelled 17-year-old junior at Port Neches-Groves, was indicted Wednesday by a Jefferson County grand jury in what prosecutors say was a terroristic threat against the high school last month.

Triston Miller, a now expelled 17-year-old junior at Port Neches-Groves, was indicted Wednesday by a Jefferson County grand jury in what prosecutors say was a terroristic threat against the high school last month.

Police say he told other students of a detailed plan about "shooting up" PN-G high school on the anniversary of the Columbine school shooting in Colorado, which was April 20.

The indictment reads that Miller threatened "to kill the occupants of Port Neches-Groves High School, with intent to place the public or substantial group of the public in fear of serious bodily injury."

While an attorney for Miller has said while there was a conversation about the upcoming Columbine anniversary among Miller and his classmates,"at no point in the conversation did Triston or the other students threaten anyone."

Miller, a junior who had recently been named to the National Honors Society, was expelled from school because of the incident.
