A 19-year-old high school student from the southwest suburbs was behind bars Monday accused of threatening a classmate on Facebook.

Thomas Braasch of Alsip was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly threatening his fellow student at Shepard High School in Palos Heights.

A Cook County prosecutor says Braasch told a classmate through Facebook last week that we had been planning to kill him for a year and would shoot him at school.
