FLORENCE, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a boy who made threats targeting students at a Florence high school had no means to carry them out.

Florence Police Lt. John Pitcher tells KCST-FM that the boy threatened to shoot “a couple people” at Siuslaw High School. Pitcher says he talked to everyone involved, searched the boy’s home and sifted through his cell phone and social media accounts.

He determined there was no real danger.

The boy allegedly made the threats Oct. 26 and was overheard by another student.

The unidentified boy was charged with disorderly conduct.
