An arrest has been made in connection with a social media threat that prompted an increased police presence Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Tuloso-Midway High School in Corpus Christi, Texas.

The threat surfaced on a ocial media network Tuesday evening, Aug. 13. The post mentioned threats to “shoot up” Tuloso-Midway High School, and because of that threat, the Corpus Christi Police Department (CCPD) increased its presence around the campus the following morning, KIIITV reported.

Investigators determined that the suspect didn’t take any steps toward carrying out the threats but they were able to identify the suspect as a 15-year-old female student, according to the CCPD.

The student was taken into police custody and booked into the Nueces County Juvenile Justice Center on charges of making terrorist threats.

Because the threat was made to a school, the charge is being enhanced and the girl now faces a third-degree felony.
