A 15-year-old boy was charged with telephone harassment and threatening violence at Highland High School in Pocatello, Idaho, on Oct. 7 (videos below).
The unidentified student allegedly placed postings on Facebook and Twitter that suggested a threat, and claimed to have guns, reports Local News 8.
The Idaho State Journal notes that one Facebook posting suggested that someone was bringing a gun “to school Friday and kill all the girls.”
Isaac Gomez, a student at the high school, told KPIV:
"Some kid who was having attention problems with some of the like, specifically some of the cheerleaders, didn't get, like, nudes, didn't have, he was asking for some inappropriate things.
"He legitimately, like, sounded like he had this all planned out. His last text that I read, he said that, 'Hopefully everyone writes a good will because I'm coming on Friday at 9:30 first period, I'm gonna start shooting from, you know, B hall, down C hall.'"
In additional to the alleged social media postings, the school reportedly received an anonymous phone call that voiced concern.
The school was placed on a temporary lockdown under a controlled access code, also called a "Code Blue" for the rest of the day.
The teen suspect is being held at a juvenile detention center.
