PARKLAND, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: BSO) — A Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student faces a misdemeanor charge for making a threat on social media.
Around 10 a.m. March 20, a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to the school to investigate a tip and interviewed the 10th-grader about photos he shared on Snapchat. In one image, the teen displays a gun in his waistband. In a second image, he shows off bullets. The detective said both photos had threatening messages; one message was directed to a person named “Josh.”
BSO detectives found the suspect’s action to have interfered with school function and disturbed the peace. The teen was subsequently hospitalized under the Baker Act for being a threat to himself. Once medically cleared, he’ll be transported to the Juvenile Assessment Center.
BSO encourages everyone to continue reporting any suspected threats by calling 954-764-HELP (4357) or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477). Threats will be thoroughly investigated. Anyone found in violation of the law will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.
