Two West Henderson High School students were charged on Friday with communicating a threat of mass violence at the school in the third school-related incident resulting in charges this week.

School administrators in coordination with the school resource deputy immediately responded to and investigated the reported threat. The safety of students and the school was maintained at all times.

Gordon Kaster Martin, 17, of Hendersonville, as well as a 16-year-old student, were each charged with making the threat. Both students are being charged as adults and were jailed on a $4,000 bond.

Deputies arrested 17-year-old Hunter Scott Aly on Sunday and charged him with making threats against two Rugby Middle School students and threatening violence at the middle school. Then on Monday, deputies charged a 14-year-old student at the Innovative High School with making a threat at that school through Instagram, triggering a 45-minute Code Yellow, or soft lockdown.
