A Georgia man has been charged with making threats that led to schools in Georgia and east Alabama closing Thursday, officials said. Eufaula police allege 27-year-old Levi Junior Calhoun III, of Georgetown, Georgia, made destructive and harmful social media threats directed toward the schools in Eufaula, Police Chief Steve Watkins said in a statement released Friday night. Eufaula City Schools were closed Thursday due to safety concerns related to the threat. Quitman County Schools in west Georgia were also closed Thursday due to the threats. Calhoun was taken into custody at the Quitman County Sheriff’s Office on a felony warrant for making a terrorist threat. Watkins said Eufaula police have obtained warrants for his arrest in Alabama. He said Calhoun will ultimately be charged with eight counts of making a terrorist threat. Calhoun is being held in Georgia awaiting an extradition hearing to Alabama. “We appreciate the cooperation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, the Fusion Center and other Law Enforcement Agencies that assisted in the investigation,” Watkins said. “We will continue to relentlessly investigate all threats to our citizens and pursue those responsible with urgency.” Further details about the threat were not immediately available.
