Student accused of making school shooting threat taken into custody



Homestead, Florida – According to authorities, a student was taken into custody Thursday after threats were allegedly made toward a school in Homestead.

In order to make sure there were no weapons on campus, Keys Gate Charter School was placed on lockdown as officers went from classroom to classroom.

According to Homestead police, no weapon has been found and the male student accused of making the threat has been identified and detained.

“Making a threat in itself is against the law,” said Homestead Police Capt. Fernando Morales. “Bringing a weapon is against the law. You will be arrested.”

About 100 parents were seen gathered outside the school, which has since been given the all-clear. Administrators sent emails to parents about the lockdown, and police were seen updating parents as they waited outside.

“We don’t know what’s false, pranks or whatnot, but we don’t take them lightly,” said Morales.

No other details were immediately released.
