A 13-year-old student has been arrested and accused of threatening to attack a Clay County school.

WJCT News partner News4Jax reports that Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook said the 13-year-old boy was arrested after he allegedly threatened to commit a shooting at Lake Asbury Junior High School.

Earlier this week, a student at the school told a teacher that she was using the House Party app when she heard the student make the threat, Cook said.

According to the student, the boy had a “Colt rifle” in his hands during a chat on the video app and threatened to commit a shooting at the school, Cook said.

The student told a teacher and law enforcement got involved and found the threat to be credible.
