A 12-year-old St. Petersburg student was arrested after a school shooting threat.
It happened at Tyrone Middle School via social media post.
Police say she posted a picture of the school on social media and saying she planned to have the school "shot up." The post was shared and seen via social media several times.
A student reported it to the school resource officer, sparking an investigation. Police arrested her Tuesday for making a written threat to kill or do bodily injury, a felony.
"Making threats at school is not a joke," SPPD says. "The St. Petersburg Police Department takes all threats against schools very seriously. Anyone who makes verbal or written threats will be investigated and face serious consequences."
