According to the police, Roy got angry after a friend on Facebook Messenger revealed a subplot to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. During the online fight that had ensued from the film spoiler, Roy is alleged to have posted a photo of himself brandishing a gun, which he indicates is a Colt 1911 with a “hair trigger”.

According to the affidavit, Roy also said he was “coming to find” the “friend” to “shoot him”. After officials saw the exchange, the victim’s school was placed on security “lock down,” as a precautionary measure.
“The victim was afraid it was a legitimate threat. The victim believed that the defendant might come to his school and harm him,” said Melissa Broch, a deputy attorney for Lewis & Clark County. Roy is likely to be arraigned in a state district court at some point in January.
