OXFORD, Miss.–Leveling Oxford High School with pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails, plus shooting people were some of the threats made by Josh Pillault, 21, a former student at the school.

Those threats came in October on an online chat during a game. Fellow gamers turned him in. In recent weeks, he claimed the threats were a joke, but pleaded guilty in federal court, in Oxford, to one count of communicating a threat in interstate communication or commerce.

Sentencing will be at a later date.
