TAMPA (WFLA) – A 7th-grade student was arrested Thursday for allegedly threatening a mass shooting at Lehigh Acres Middle School.
According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, the 12-year-old child is facing charges after investigators said he made a post on social media threatening to commit a school shooting Wednesday night.
According to WBBH, the threat was a picture of a rifle on a table with the caption “Don’t come to school tomorrow I will kill the people.”
Detectives searched the 12-year-old’s home and found two airsoft guns inside the boys room and several firearms locked away in a safe elsewhere in the home.
The child has been charged with a threat to conduct a mass shooting.
