LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office has charged a teen for allegedly posting threatening messages regarding Lebanon High School via a social media app last week.
Parents were alerted of the anonymous threat sent via an app called “After School” last Wednesday night.
The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said the app’s management provided “vital information almost instantly,” which led them to the person responsible for the threatening posts.
The student, who attends Lebanon High School, was charged in Wilson County juvenile court on Friday. That student’s identity was not released.
“Although this was a tense situation for all parents, we want parents to know that when this type of crime is committed, it is taken very seriously,” Sheriff Robert Bryan said.
