ABERDEEN, Md. (WJZ) — Two students were charged Friday for falsely reporting threats against their middle school after police said a parent saw a threatening social media post.
The parent called Aberdeen Middle School on Monday after 3 p.m. to report the post from a student warning others not to come to school the following day because of a threat they claimed was made by another student to shoot up the school.
An investigation by the Aberdeen Police Department determined that the threat was not credible and that a threat was never made as originally reported.
Two eighth grade students were referred to Juvenile Services, One was charged with false statement to a peace officer and the other with disturbing school operations.
