FULTON COUNTY, Ga. -

A Fulton County judge granted Joseph Medved a $50,000 bond Friday, ordering that 51-year-old Forsyth County resident must stay away from schools and firearms.

Medved is accused of threatening to open fire at a Gwinnett County school. He was arrested on Thursday after allegedly being overheard making the threat.

The judge scheduled Medved's next appearance for September 27.

Police say Medved allegedly made the threats at a health clinic in Roswell on Wednesday.  He is accused of telling a receptionist that he wanted to test his weapons at his old high school, which is in Gwinnett County.

Police say Medved then attempted to purchase a gun at a pawn shop in Forsyth County. According to authorities, after his 24-hour background check cleared, Medved picked up the rifle.

Authorities said they then received reports of Medved shooting a gun near his home in Cumming.

Police secured a warrant and surrounded Medved's home on Goldmine Road, where he was arrested.

Deputies say they found  a shotgun, rounds, and shrapnel in the basement of the home.

Medved was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats.
