A teenager has been charged after police said a threat was made on social media toward a College Station high school late Sunday.
Authorities said the police department received multiple reports about the post and were able to local the source.
The teen was charged with making a terroristic threat with the intent to place the public in fear of serious bodily injury, a third-degree felony punishable for up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000. Officials did not release the teen’s identity.
Officials said they do not believe the public is in danger. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 764-3600.
Officials ask the public to use P3 Campus, an app and website that allows students to anonymously submit tips to school and law enforcement officials and to report suspicious or concerning activity. Both the Bryan and College Station school districts use the app.
