A 14-year-old boy has been arrested on charges he threatened a shooting at his middle school on Long Island.
Suffolk County police haven't released the teen's name. They say he's charged with making a terroristic threat.
He was released to his mother and is due in Family Court on Jan. 2.
Police say the boy created a Facebook page using a female classmate's name. He then allegedly posted a threat that involved committing a shooting at the school on Wednesday.
The Bay Shore School District posted a message on its website saying police had already increased their presence outside all schools after the shootings last week in Newtown, Conn.
