Oil City student accused of threats to ‘shoot up’ school

From staff reports

An Oil City High School student is facing charges after he allegedly made a gun threat at the school Tuesday morning.

Oil City police said K’Hane Aquemini Bishop Mabin, 18, was taken into custody around 10 a.m. after making threats to “shoot up” the school and asking another male student to join him.

The other student alerted the faculty of Mabin’s threat, and Mabin later admitted to police he did make the statement, police said.

Mabin is facing misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats and disorderly conduct.

He was arraigned before District Judge Andrew Fish and placed in the Venango County jail on $50,000 bail.

Mabin had been released on unsecured bail Friday on charges of sexual assault and furnishing liquor to minors in relation to an incident in September.

A preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 3 in Central Court.
