CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Two teens have been arrested for making a threat on a social media site against a school in Chapel Hill.

Police said the two Chapel Hill teens were arrested Monday for making a false report of mass violence. Lt. Josh Mecimore said in an email Tuesday that no specific school was mentioned in the threat. Mecimore said investigators were not sure that the threat was from Monday.

Mecimore said the message threatened a shooting but nothing happened at any school in the town that also is home to the University of North Carolina’s flagship campus.

The teens were released to their parents and were to appear in court later.
