Boy, 13, Arrested After Making Threats To "Shoot Up" PBC School

 Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies arrested a 13-year-old boy who they say threatened to "shoot up" a Pakohee school on Snapchat.

The unidentified boy told deputies that the threat against Glades Academy was a joke. Deputies said they found no weapons in his possession.

He faces a charge of written threats to kill and do bodily injury with mass shooting.

South Florida schools have seen more and more threats pouring in in the wake of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Feb. 14.

Most of the threats have been hoaxes, but Broward County sheriff's deputies did arrest a Pompano Beach teenager in late February and confiscated bomb parts and other weapons.
