CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A man accused of saying he wanted to shoot people at a high school football game pleaded not guilty to a charge of threat of terrorist acts.
Shawn P. Foglesong, 40, of Charleston is accused of telling a counselor at Highland Hospital in September that he wanted to take a gun to a Sissonville High School football game and start shooting.
He allegedly said he was thinking about "killing someone up close and personal" and that he intended to commit suicide by letting police shoot him.
The counselor notified police.
"Medical personnel are among the group of professionals that, when clients threaten harm, they must make a report to local police," Capt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department said at the time.
"When detectives learned of the threats, they immediately began their investigation, obtained a warrant and arrested Foglesong at his home without incident."Foglesong is being held at South Central Regional Jail on a $125,000 bond, and a judge refused to lower that bond Tuesday. He is set to go on trial June 10.
