ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 14-year-old boy made threats on Snapchat to bring a machete to his Florida high school and kill two students.

Pasco County Sheriff’s officials said in a news release that the boy was arrested Sunday. He had threatened to bring the machete to Zephyrhills High School on Monday.

The student told investigators the message was meant as a joke.

He was taken to a juvenile facility.

No further details were immediately available.
