SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Sierra Vista say a 14-year-old high school student has been detained after apparently threatening to shoot other students.

The Sierra Vista Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2hlsBA6 ) that Sgt. Mertie Stompro says the student made threats on at least two occasions on or close to Monday, Dec. 5. Stompro says multiple students at Buena High School overheard the threats and reported them to a teacher the following Wednesday.

The teenage boy was suspended the next day.

Sierra Vista investigators interviewed witnesses and the student and, after consulting with the Cochise County Attorney’s Office, charged him with threatening or intimidating.

Stompro says it’s unclear if the student planned to follow up on his threats.

Sierra Vista Unified School District spokeswoman Eva Dickerson says the district takes every threat seriously.
