SHORELINE, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a 17-year-old Shorewood High School student was arrested Thursday night after school officials reported receiving information that the student planned to “shoot up the school.”

King County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Cindi West said in a statement that a parent had called school officials and said rumors were circulating about a student planning a shooting at the school in Shoreline.

Investigators say the teen told other students not to go to school Friday because of his plans and that he posted a message on Snapchat saying goodbye.

The student was arrested and booked into a juvenile detention facility for investigation of felony threats.
