A Michigan teen was arrested after police say he used Facebook to threaten fellow students with gun violence, police reported Monday, Feb. 25.
According to spokesmen from the Michigan State Police Wakefield Post, teen, a 16-year-old male student at Wakefield-Marinesco High School, was arrested Monday morning. Police say the targets of the threat were students who were disciplined last week for bullying the teen.
School officials contacted police Monday after seeing the post on the popular social networking site.
As of this report, the teen has been released to Gogebic County Probate Court. It is not known when he is scheduled to appear in court or if he has an attorney.
The high school was on lockdown Monday while the incident was being investigated. Sources say the teen will also face disciplinary action at school, which may include expulsion.
Wakefield is about 215 miles north of Green Bay, Wis., in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
