Logan S. Pallister

A 23-year-old Helena man accused of threatening a shooting attack on Helena High School is facing an additional felony charge, and his bond has been set at $750,000. 

The Lewis and Clark County Attorney’s Office on Wednesday amended its complaint against Logan Pallister, adding a charge of possession of a silencer. Pallister was charged Tuesday with two felony counts of intimidation and one felony count of possession of explosives after officers received reports that he had made threats regarding a mass shooting at Helena High School and had access to weapons and possible explosive devices.

Police added additional information to their affidavit Wednesday, stating they had dealt with Pallister in 2020 when he was carrying several firearms and had guns in a duffel bag in his vehicle. They said that in 2019 he pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed weapon in a local grocery store and openly carrying a TEC-9-style weapon while concealing a semi-automatic pistol beneath his coat.
