(CBS/AP) HOUSTON - Patrick Hudson, a 19-year-old suburban Houston man, appeared in court Wednesday after he allegedly made threats online about shooting children at an elementary school and streaming the killings live, CBS Houston reports.

FBI and Harris County authorities arrested Hudson on Tuesday on a felony charge of making a terrorist threat. He appeared in a Harris County court the next day and is being held on $100,000 bond.

The FBI said in a statement that they received a tip saying that Hudson wrote in an Internet chat room about committing suicide after killing elementary school students in Katy, just west of Houston.

"What better way to go out with a bang than killing a bunch of little kids," SS_Patrick posted, according to court documents.

The posts also contained statements of him wanting to leave a few of the children alive and asking for advice about how to stream the killings live on the Internet, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Records show Hudson acknowledged the postings to investigators when they arrested him but he insisted that the posts were a joke.
