An 18-year-old West-Oak High School student was arrested in late March on charges of disturbing school by making threats of a "Columbine-style shooting," according to an arrest warrant.

The student, Amy McKenzie Faust, has been released on a personal recognizance bond.

A teacher reported to a school resource officer that students said Faust had discussed a hit list of two particular students as well as the principal and everyone in a chemistry class, according to an Oconee County Sheriff's Office deputy's report.

The report noted that Faust admitted to making remarks about shooting up the school.
