Juvenile In Custody After Snapchat Post That Threatens 2 Schools

Two South Florida schools have extra police on hand Thursday after an overnight threat was posted to the social media app Snapchat.

West Palm Beach Police say the post featured a photo of what looks like a gun and reads "I got the gun I'm bout to blow Roosevelt and Bak up."

It appears to reference Roosevelt and Bak Middle Schools.

Police now say the "gun" was actually a video game controller in the shape of a gun.

Police have arrested a juvenile who admitted to making the threat but said it was just a hoax. This was a joint investigation between West Palm Beach PD and School Police.
