FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Facebook threats led to the arrests of four North Fort Myers Academy students.
Lee County Sheriff's officials said Wednesday the teens were charged with aggravated stalking.
Authorities say the threats were directed at a student the teens believed "snitched" on their friend for bringing a gun to school on Jan. 24. The 14-year-old friend was charged with possession of a firearm.
The next day, a parent told deputies about the death threats against her child. She provided copies of conversations between a 13-year-old girl, two 14-year-old girls and a 14-year-old boy. Authorities say each of the four students made threats to kill the teen.
Deputies say the targeted student had nothing to do with the arrest of the teen on gun charges.
