LODI, Calif. — Lodi Police officers arrested a 13-year-old on Friday, Dec. 17, who the department said is responsible for posting school shooting threats on social media.
Officers received reports of a threat to Millswood Middle School on Thursday, Dec. 16, through Instagram.
Detectives and officers worked to find the person who was making the threats.
The teenager was booked into juvenile hall. The police department said no additional information could be released because of the teen's age.
