PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man who threatened on Facebook to bring a gun to his high school and kill anyone who "looks at me wrong" has pleaded guilty.
Zachary Barbeau pleaded guilty Wednesday in Berkshire Superior Court to threatening the use of a deadly weapon, causing serious public alarm, threatening to commit assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and disruption of a public assembly.
He was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before sentencing on April 27. He is expected to receive probation.
Authorities say the 19-year-old Barbeau made the threat to Drury High School in North Adams in November.
Police determined Barbeau didn't have access to guns and he admitted it was "a dumb thing to do." His lawyer tells the Berkshire Eagle his client has learning disabilities.
