Naples High School student arrested for making ‘violent threats’

A teenager who attends Naples High School was arrested after making threats of violence on social media Thursday according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

The 15-year-old student faces charges of written threats to kill, do bodily injury, or conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism under Florida Statute 836.10, according to CCSO.

This statute was expanded after February’s shooting at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to include “any person who makes, posts, or transmits a threat in a writing or other record, including an electronic record, to conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism, in any manner that would allow another person to view the threat.”

Police say that if you see something of concern, don’t spread it, but do report it.

Call 911 or the CCSO non-emergency number at (239) 252-9300.
