MOSS BLUFF, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 12-year-old boy is the second student in one Louisiana community to be arrested on suspicion of threatening to shoot up a school.

The Calcasieu (KAL-kuh-shoo) Parish Sheriff’s Office says detectives were told that the boy had threatened Friday to shoot up Moss Bluff Middle School.

Last week, a 15-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of threatening to shoot people at Sam Houston High School.

The schools are about two-thirds of a mile (nearly 1 kilometer) apart in Moss Bluff, a southwest Louisiana community of about 11,500 people.

Each boy was arrested on suspicion of terrorizing.
