Crestview, FL (November 15, 2018) – In Crestview, a 15-year-old boy was charged with making a gun threat, which consisted of falsely reporting the use of a firearm in a violent manner. The boy was arrested after a Facebook post was made.

A witness said that the boy posted on social media that he was going to bash another student’s head into a brick wall and then bring a gun to school to kill him. This incident was sparked when the defendant saw his ex-girlfriend walking with the other boy to school last week.

This is not the first incident that has been related to these types of threats at Crestview. The school is taking the threat seriously but has received threats three other times on their premises this year.
