A Tallahassee high school student is facing a felony charge over a social media threat
A 15 year old Lincoln high school student was arrested during class Wednesday. The student is accused of making social media threats about violence at the school and claimed to have a firearm on campus.
A parent notified Lincoln’s School Resource Deputy about a conversation on the Discord platform. The deputy and school administrators removed the student from class and searched his belongings, finding no weapons.
The student was taken to the Leon County Juvenile Assessment Center. He is charged with one count of Making a Written Threat to Conduct a Mass Shooting, which is a second-degree felony.
The Leon County Sheriff’s Office says an investigation found no active or credible threat to the school.
