Pa. boy, 14, arrested after alleged school threat

The Richland County Sheriff's Department says it's looking into threats made by three students from Blythewood High School

According to Corona police, the 15-year-old boy, whose name was withheld, was booked into Riverside Juvenile Hall on Thursday night, January 25 on suspicion of making criminal threats, after he allegedly posted messages online saying he meant to commit an unspecified act of violence at the high school.

Benton Police Department received information that evening about a possible threat directed at the Benton Junior High School campus, according to a Friday news release. That's what he said, he didn't like them.

Uniontown police and state police were in every district school Friday morning, and a state trooper was stationed on the school bus where the alleged attack was discussed, Bower said.

According to a LaRue County Schools news release, the LCHS student made a threatening statement at school on Wednesday, stemming from a conversation about the situation in Marshall County, and that school officials take such statements very seriously. No weapons were found at either student's home and the threats were believed to be not credible, officials said. The high school was locked down until it was determined that neither student was in school and that the student making threats was in police custody.

Police did not identify either teen amid the ongoing investigation.

Authorities decided it was safe for students to attend school Thursday.
