WALKER, LA (WAFB) - The Walker Police Department reported two teens were arrested Thursday morning for making threats of school violence.
Capt. John Sharp with WPD said Gage Allen, 17, of Walker, and a 16-year-old face charges.
"Be prepared to go to jail," police said to anyone thinking of starting a rumor about school violence.
Sharp said the arrests were the result of an investigation into a social media post that suggested a threat of violence at Walker High School.
"To date, there have been no actual or attempted acts of violence at any of the eight schools within the Walker city limits," Sharp explained.
The Walker Police Department issued the following about the incident:
Gage was booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center on a charge of terrorizing. His bond is set at $25,000.
The 16-year-old is charged with intimidation and interference in the operations of schools. This teen was released to its parents. The name and picture were not released due to the suspect's age.
