Teen arrested after shooting threat against school is posted
PASADENA, Md. (AP) — A 16-year-old boy has been charged after social media post threatening a shooting at a Maryland school was reported.
Anne Arundel County Police said in a statement that the threat was made late Sunday against Northeast High School in Pasadena.
The Baltimore Sun reports a Snapchat photo showed a hand holding the ammunition magazine of a gun with the caption “Shooting up Northeast tomorrow” and a racial slur.
