Teen charged in threat to Cy-Fair ISD school also homicide suspect, records show

Authorities have released the mugshot of the teen arrested in connection with a report of an armed person at a high school in the Cy-Fair Independent School District Friday.

HOUSTON – The teenager who was charged in connection with a threat at a Cy-Fair Independent School District high school on Friday is also a suspect in a homicide investigation, court records showed.

Jordan James McGee, 17, was arrested and charged with possession of a prohibited weapon after authorities said he ran from officers who confronted him at Langham High School.

Authorities said they received a report that McGee was armed and headed to the school. 

Cy-Fair ISD Police Chief Eric Mendez said authorities intercepted McGee in a hallway, and he fled the campus. 

According to Mendez, he was arrested in a nearby neighborhood and was in possession of a handgun.

The school was placed on lockdown after there were reports of a second armed person, but the lockdown was lifted after authorities confirmed the report was unfounded. 

No shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident.

Documents filed by prosecutors Monday ahead of McGee's bond hearing showed a request for a $150,000 bond because the "defendant is a suspect in an active homicide investigation." According to the request, McGee is also "a documented gang member."

Records showed that McGee's bond was set at $100,000, and he was remanded into custody.
