Police: 16-year-old Lebanon Catholic School student charged after making threats to school
LEBANON, Pa —
Police have charged a 16-year-old Lebanon Catholic School student after he made threats to the school.
A 16-year-old female student told police that a 16-year-old boy told her not to come to school on Thursday because "he was 'going to do it'" while making "a finger gun with his hand when closing a classroom door and told her no one could leave the room," according to police.
He also told her twice on Wednesday that if she told anyone "he would 'kill her,'" according to police.
Police say that the male student also posted a photo of him holding two guns, which turned out to be airsoft guns, on social media.
The boy was charged with terroristic threats and has been detained by Lebanon County Juvenile Probation. Police say that they believe it is an isolated incident but they were present at the beginning of school on Thursday.
