NODAWAY COUNTY, Mo. -- A Blue Springs man was charged Thursday in connection to making terrorist threats on the Northwest Missouri State University campus.

19-year-old Connor Stottlemyre has been charged with one count of making terrorist threats with reckless disregard, a felony. He was also charged with one count of making terrorist threats with criminal neglect, a misdemeanor.

Stottlemyre is accused of posting the threats to a social media app known as YIK YAK near Northwest Missouri State University's campus.

According to the probable cause statement, Stottlemyre first posted  a threat to YIK YAK on Thursday, Nov. 5 at 9:35 p.m. The post said, " I love evil, I just want to shoot up H&P they're all bullies especially in Hudson."

Prosecutors say another post was made to YIK YAK on Wednesday, Nov. 11 just after midnight that said, "I'm gonna shoot any black pp tomorrow so be ready."

Three minutes later, prosecutors say Stottlemyre followed up by posting, "I love evil, I can't wait for Northwest to make the news tomorrow."

Prosecutors add that when confronted, Stottlemyre admitted to making the posts from his cell phone and is responsible for making the threats on YIK YAK.

Stottlemyre is due in court Tuesday, Nov. 17.
