Ryan Lee, the student who threatened to shoot students at Lewis and Clark High School, was arrested for the third time on Friday, according to Spokane Police.

Teresa Fuller, spokesperson for Spokane Police Department said she could not confirm if Lee was arrested on new harassment or cyberstalking charges, or if he only violated a condition of his release from jail in January.

Lee was first arrested in June 2018 for threatening to shoot students at Lewis and Clark High School. The threat led to hundreds of student absences.

He was arrested for a second time in January while out on bail. Police accused him of messaging a female student at Lewis and Clark and saying he would shoot her family. He also reportedly sent pornographic images and messages and vulgar threats.

Lee’s bond in January was set at $1 million, but the bond was reduced to $100,000 after a request by his family. His family paid the lower bond in cash and bailed out Lee.

Lee was arrested again on Friday and will appear before a judge on Monday, according to Fuller.
