Deferred sentence in school shooting threat case

A man accused of making school shooting threats in May has pleaded guilty.

Bismarck police say 19-year-old Brent Basquin made threats through Snapchat saying if anyone messed with him he was going to use a handgun to shoot kids at a school.

Brent pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and possession of a hallucinogen.

Basquin admitted to making the post as a joke. He told police he had been pushed onto the ground and the threat was in response to the people who harmed him.

Officers found shrooms on the suspect while booking him, according to the affidavit.

A judge ordered a deferred sentence of 360 days.
