A week after a Florida gunman killed 17 people at his former high school, a Miami student flashed his assault-style rifle on social media, but police say he wasn't a threat.
At Kansas City's Northeast High School, a concerned student passed along the social media threat in a tip to administrators. We want to emphasize that local, state, and federal law enforcement take all threats seriously and investigate each incident.
After receiving the threat, detectives determined the school to be Lakewood High School. The 16-year-old was arrested and later said he was "only joking". He was subsequently suspended from school, they added. "We are all working together to ensure the safety of our students".
A high school student took a gun onto the Lemoore High School campus in what Lemoore Police officials called an "isolated incident", leading to the arrest of the student and the student's father.
Garrett Nelson said TPS treats all threats as credible until they are proved otherwise.
"The student appeared to make no attempt to harm any students/staff and made no substantial attempt to acquire weapons", police said. No weapons were found in connection to this threat.
A juvenile is arrested following an alleged social media threat. Judge Robert Anderson released the boy, who spent the night in a juvenile facility, into the custody of his parents and ordered him placed on indefinite home detention. The soft lockdown was lifted before 2 p.m. "The soft lock down ended when the threat was contained".
