ONA – A juvenile male was arrested Tuesday afternoon after he allegedly made threats on social media toward Cabell Midland High School, according to Cabell County Schools.

Cabell County Sheriff Chuck Zerkle said a juvenile male posted a photo of himself holding a gun accompanied by threats made to the school around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. Within an hour of police being made aware of the post, the individual was arrested. Zerkle said he is housed in the Robert Shell Center and will go before Cabell Circuit Judge Paul Farrell tomorrow.

A robocall sent out by Cabell County Schools spokesperson Jedd Flowers alerted Cabell Midland students and parents of the arrest. Flowers said the school remains open and on regular schedule.
