A Lynn Camp High School student was arrested Tuesday after admitting to police that he threatened to shoot multiple students while at the school.
Kentucky State Police Master Trooper Shane Jacobs, public affairs officer at Post 10 in Harlan, said police were called to investigate after a concern parent contacted them concerning the threats made by the 14-year-old male student.
The parent reportedly has a daughter who is a student at the high school.
Trooper Drew Wilson spoke with the parent, daughter, and, later, the accused.
Jacobs stated that the accused admitted to police that he had made the threats.
He was charged with second-degree terroristic threatening and lodged in the Breathitt County Juvenile Detention Center.
