BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A 16-year-old Glen Burnie teen has been arrested after police say he posted a threat of violence towards Northeast High School online.

When police identified and met with the teen, who has no affiliation with the school, he claimed that he meant the post as a joke and quickly deleted the post from his social media account.

Officers determined the boy did not have the means to carry out his threat and there is no danger to the school.

The boy has been charged as a juvenile with threats of mass violence and disturbing school operations. He has been released to the custody of his parents.
