Threats of violence made on social media Jan. 31 that were directed at students at several Wayne County public schools set parents and students on edge with some students skipping school and staying home the next day.

Several hours after the threats were made, Wayne County deputies were able to track down and arrest the 13-year-old accused of making the threats. The juvenile was arrested and charged on a juvenile petition for communicating a threat of mass violence on educational property, according to a press release from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.
