LIMA — The teenager who allegedly threatened to “shoot it up” at Elida schools later this fall made his first in-person appearance Wednesday in Lima Municipal Court.

Tristan Ascura, 19, of Lima, voluntarily waived his right to a preliminary hearing — typically used to determine whether sufficient probable cause exists to advance a case through the legal system — and was bound over to next term of the Allen County grand jury. He faces a second-degree felony charge of inducing panic.

Magistrate Richard Warren ordered bond for Ascura to be continued at $500,000. Defense attorney William Kluge argued for a reduction in his client’s bond. Kluge told the court Ascura — who is of Filipino descent and is a naturalized American citizen — has strong family support and could continue working at his current place of employment while wearing an ankle bracelet if the bond were lowered.
