Teen charged in alleged prom threat appears in court


VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — One of the suspects charged in an alleged foiled terror plot at a prom in Virginia Beach appeared in court. 

Michael Coleman was assigned an attorney during a hearing Monday morning.

He and a 17-year-old face charges conspiring to commit a terroristic act at Bayside High School’s prom — which was earlier this month at the Westin at Town Center.

Police found guns and Coleman’s accomplice in a hotel room there.

Norfolk police arrested Coleman a few days later in connection to a shooting off Azalea Garden Road.

Coleman is expected to be in a Virginia Beach court tomorrow for the alleged terror plot.
