December 11, 2023

Portsmouth High School shooting threat suspect Kyle Hendrickson will be sentenced to prison in March after pleading guilty on Monday in federal court.

The 25-year-old formally entered his guilty plea on two charges connected to the April 12 Snapchat video he took outside the city high school.

Taken with the message, ‘imma gonna shoot up the school,’ the video shows him holding up a Smith & Wesson SD40 VE handgun and pointing it at a passenger next to him, with the Portsmouth High School sign visible in the background, according to investigators.
