A second Dothan resident faces a felony charge of making a threat of shooting at a Wiregrass school.

According to a statement from Troy Police Sgt. Benny Scarbrough, Troy police investigators arrested 22-year-old Kenya Demon Flowers and charged him with felony making a terrorist threat.

The statement said the charge stemmed from an argument Flowers had with a 17-year-old girl during which he made threats toward her and the school that she attends, Charles Henderson High School in Troy.

Court records show police charged Flowers with threatening to “shoot up her school." The police statement said the threat was made during an argument the two people had during a telephone conversation Wednesday morning.

The statement said the teenage girl reported to the school resource officer after she arrived at school Wednesday morning.

Flowers was taken to the Pike County Jail and held on $15,000 bail.

In an unrelated but similar case, Dothan police arrested a woman earlier this week on a similar charge.

Dothan police investigators charged Glendell Ruth Hasan, 55, of Dothan, with felony making a terrorist threat, which resulted in Jerry Lee Faine Elementary School being placed on lockdown for about an hour Tuesday morning.

Records also show police charged Hasan with making a statement to a teacher’s aide at Faine Elementary School, which included “they can shoot up this whole school as far as I care.”

Dothan Police Lt. Will Benny said Hasan got into a confrontation with a school employee during which she allegedly made reference to a shooting at the school.

Hasan was taken to the Houston County Jail and held on $15,000 bail.

Both Flowers and Hasan face one to 10 years in prison if convicted of the class C felony crime of making a terrorist threat.
