Florida 5th grader arrested for alleged mass shooting threat

CAPE CORAL, Fla. – Officers on the West Coast of Florida have made an arrest after a shooting threat was made at a school.

Authorities said the threat was made by a 10-year-old boy.

The fifth grader allegedly texted about inciting violence at his elementary school.

The lee county sheriff’s office is taking the threats seriously, especially after the massacre in Uvalde, Texas, last week.

Detectives interviewed the boy and later charged him with threatening to carry out a mass shooting.
