MIDLAND - New information on the events that lead to the lockdowns of Coleman High School and the Advanced Technology Center earlier this week and it's a crazy love-triangle with a history of domestic violence.

According to the affidavit, Michael Williams and a student at Coleman High School were in an abusive relationship.

That student claimed Williams hit her on several occasions.

But last month when she found out, he was married and threatened to tell his wife.

She told police Williams became angry and threatened to shoot her and claims Williams forced to her to get a gun, put his hands on top of hers and made her hold the gun to her head.

The affidavit also says the student claims Williams told her he would cut up her face with a saw so no one would want her.

Flash forward to Tuesday, that's when the victim told police Williams kept harassing her on the phone and sent threatening text messages.

She told authorities and that's when the call was made to lockdown Coleman and the Advanced Technology Center as she attended both schools.

Several law enforcement agencies maintained security at both campuses throughout the day.
