Student arrested after Facebook threat

January 18, 2011

Indianapolis police arrested a Warren Central High School student Tuesday morning who allegedly made threats on Facebook about “shooting up the school.” The 16-year-old is being held at Marion County's juvenile detention center on one felony count of intimidation. Police were alerted to the threat Monday night after students saw it posted and alerted their parents. A parent said no notification about a possible threat was given via the school district’s automated phone-message system, but police were on hand at the school Tuesday to speak with students.
