PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Police say they’ve charged a 17-year-old with making a threat directed toward students at Casco Bay High School in Portland.

Portland Police Lt. Robert Martin said the teen was arrested on a terrorizing charge Wednesday morning in neighboring Westbrook. Police seized a BB-gun.

Martin said the initial investigation points to a longstanding dispute between two different groups of teens outside of school.
