WILSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 14-year-old was arrested for making a threat against students at Wilson Central High School.

According to the school system, the threat was made on social media Sunday.

They said a fellow student told their parents about it, and they then notified police.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Department identified the student and took that person into custody.

School officials do not believe the threat was credible; however, they do take these situations seriously.

They also want to assure parents that “the matter has been thoroughly investigated and dealt with.”

A disciplinary hearing has been scheduled with the Wilson County school district on Wednesday.

For the time being, he has been placed on house arrest, cannot access social media, and is under parental supervision 24 hours a day. His home also cannot have any weapons inside.
