A 15-year-old male Melvindale High School student was charged with making a "false report or threat of terrorism" Thursday after being arrested the day before for allegedly making online threats against the school.

A 15-year-old student was arrested Wednesday in connection with a threat against Melvindale High School.

"Detectives intercepted the Snapchat post and were able to locate the student in school", police stated.

This is the second school shooting threat in Valencia County Thursday.

Belen is 30 miles south of Albuquerque.

After a teacher was told about the incident, the students who heard the remarks were questioned by administrators at school on Tuesday.

Police noted in their statement that "despite this student's opinion to the contrary, the Hartford Police Department, Hartford Union High School, and our entire community take safety in our schools and threats of this nature seriously". A number of students have been arrested for making the threats.

The student is in custody at the Wayne County Juvenile Detention Facility awaiting a detention hearing.

"We want to commend the students who were courageous enough to report this to school staff", the department states.

Police say Flores told officers that he posted the threat as a joke.

Somersworth police arrested a teen accused of hijacking a fellow student's social media account and posting that they "liked to threaten to shoot up schools".

There have been a number of threats in MI since 17 people were killed last week at a Florida school. "And that whether it's a joke and think it's amusing".

"Then I guess they realized things were more serious than they thought, so they moved us into the locker room", Smith said. We didn't want to wake them up in the middle of the night.
