GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Bond will stay at $100,000 for a Palisade High School student accused of making ‘Columbine style’ threats against the school.

The attorney for Robert Johnson says there is no evidence that the 18–year–old had taken any steps to blow up the school.

According to court documents, Johnson told a student he had guns and that he wanted to buy explosives to carry out an attack.

Documents state that during an interview with investigators, Johnson said he did not like the principal or an assistant principal at the school and that he in fact thought about blowing up and shooting people in the school.

Johnson remains in the Mesa County jail Thursday night.
