HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) — Authorities say a juvenile in north-central Arkansas has been arrested on suspicion of threatening a shooting at his school.

Cleburne County Sheriff Chris Brown says deputies learned last Thursday that a Heber Springs student had made comments about carrying out a shooting attack at the school the next day.

Brown says deputies brought the male student into custody Friday morning for questioning, and the youth was later taken to the White River Juvenile Detention Center.

The sheriff says the student was charged as a juvenile with one count of terroristic threatening.
