Eighth graders arrested for fake school shooting threat in Maryland


Recommended Posts

Two eighth grade students have been arrested after allegedly spreading a fake school shooting threat at a Maryland middle school. 



Earlier this month, a parent contacted Aberdeen Middle School to report seeing a social media post from a student, warning students not to come to classes the next day because another student was allegedly threatening a school shooting, the Aberdeen Police Department said in a statement Friday. 

After an investigation, police determined the student in question never made a threat and two eighth grade students were responsible for faking the report. One student was charged with make a false statement to a peace office and the other with disturbing school operations. 

False school shooting reports "will not be tolerated," the police department said.
