Teenager arrested for making cyber-threat against Vancleave High School

A 16-year-old Jackson County juvenile is charged with making a threat on social media against Vancleave High School. Sheriff Mike Ezell says investigators on Sunday charged the teen with making a cyber-threat by posting a picture on Snapchat. The image allegedly shows him holding a firearm with a caption that said “don’t come to school Monday.”
Investigators were alerted to the threat after the high school principal told them he received the image anonymously. The sheriff says the principal recognized the boy and called the sheriff’s department. Investigators recovered the gun from a Vancleave residence where the boy reportedly attended a party Saturday night. Sheriff Ezell says the weapon appears to be an antique style pistol.
The teen is in custody at the Jackson County Youth Court.
