Two Nashville Prep Middle School 8th grade students arrested following a mass shooting threat made on social media

They are old enough to know better than to make such threats these days.



On Monday afternoon, two Nashville Prep Middle School eighth-graders were taken into custody by the Metro Nashville Police Department.

According to reports, the students had made a threat against the school on social media last Thursday, February 23.

The 13-year-old students claimed that they had posted a threat of a mass shooting on Instagram to avoid going to school on Friday.

Both students now face charges of making a threat of mass violence at a school and providing false information about an emergency.

At present, no additional details have been released.
