    HARLAN, Ky. (AP) - Police say a South Carolina man has been charged with threatening to "shoot everyone" at a high school graduation in Kentucky.

    Kentucky State Police said Wednesday they were notified by the Harlan Independent School district about a threat against the Harlan High School graduation, scheduled for this Saturday.

    A police news release says a student at the school received a text from a man in South Carolina stating he would come to the graduation and "shoot everyone."

    Police say the text came from 34-year-old Felix Melquinoes Martinez, of Columbia, South Carolina. He is being held in jail in Columbia as he awaits extradition to Harlan to face a charge of terroristic threatening, a felony.

    Online jail records do not show if he has a lawyer.
