A Massachusetts high school student is held on $1 million bail on a charge that he threatened to kill people and outdo the Boston Marathon bombings.

Eighteen-year-old Cameron Dambrosio of Methuen pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Lawrence District Court on a charge of communicating a terrorist threat. He was arrested Wednesday. A dangerousness hearing is set for May 9. His defense attorney declined to immediately comment on the case to reporters out.

Methuen Police Chief Joseph Solomon tells The Eagle Tribune the threats were made on Facebook and weren't directed at a specific person or target. Police searched his house and turned over a computer and Xbox to state police for analysis. Detectives are also looking at his Facebook page.
