A 17-year-old North East ISD student was caught Friday morning posting threats against a local high school on social media.
District officials say several messages were posted on social media sites threatening violence at Roosevelt High School.
School district police determined the posts were from a fake account and not credible.
However, they also figured out that the person posting the threats was a student who was posting from inside the school.
Police tracked down the student through her Google account and she confessed.
“Threats like this are not funny and NEISD will absolutely not tolerate them,” NEISD spokeswoman Aubrey Chancellor stated in a news release.
The district plans to pursue charges against the student “to the fullest extent of the law.”
The student has been charged with four felonies.
