A 14-year-old student is facing charges in connection to threats made on social media against Salisbury High School last week.
Salisbury Police say the threat was a copycat of one that occurred in Ohio. The student changed his old Facebook account to mirror the name used in the original threat.
On February 22, a person going by the name of Ray Andres posted on Facebook that: “I will not being telling people what my name is, but I will bring a gun to school Tomorrow, so be prepared to hear shoots.” Ten minutes later, the same account posted a status stating that SHS is the school that he was targeting.
Investigators say the teen will be charged as an adult. School administrators say they will also be taking appropriate actions on their end.
Police say this was an isolated incident and no further arrests will be made at this time.
