SEATTLE (AP) - Officials say a 16-year-old student has been arrested for bringing a Molotov cocktail to school, just days after a mass shooting at a school in nearby Marysville.

The Seattle Police Department said on its Twitter feed that it made the arrest Monday morning at The Center School, a small public school on the grounds of Seattle Center near the Space Needle. Seattle Public Schools identified the incendiary device as a Molotov cocktail and said there were no injuries. The school was evacuated as a precaution.

On Friday, a student opened fire in a cafeteria at a high school in Marysville, about 35 north of Seattle, killing two girls and severely wounding three other students before killing himself.
