A troubled ninth grader has been arrested after threatening students and staff at a school in eastern Spartanburg County, South Carolina with “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow” via a Snapchat post, according to the local sheriff’s office.

The minor, whose name wasn’t disclosed because of his age, was charged with disturbing schools, and was transported to a Department of Juvenile Justice facility in Greenville.

According to WSPA, Lieutenant Kevin Bobo of the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said the threat was reported when another teen showed the Snapchat message, sent by a Broome High School freshman wearing a mask and holding what appeared to be an assault rifle, to his father, who promptly reported it to the authorities.

School officials were alerted early Thursday morning. According to Spartanburg School District 3 officials, enhanced security is being provided at Broome High School to ensure students’ safety. The suspect told police that the post was an innocent joke.

The suspect’s parents allowed deputies to search their home. The sheriff’s office said the mask and the weapon, which turned out to be a pellet gun, were discovered. The student who tipped off local authorities was congratulated for showing courage.

“The district would like to commend the student who came forward with information. It is this kind of courage to speak out that can and will prevent tragedies,” District 3 Superintendent Kenny Blackwood reportedly said in a statement.

In the latest US school mass shooting, another disturbed former high school student, Nikolas Cruz, massacred 17 of his former classmates and wounding another 14 more when he stormed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday. He was later apprehended by police after stopping at a Subway and a McDonald’s. He has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and, because of his age, will be tried as an adult – meaning he could receive the death penalty.
