Two Birdville ISD middle school students will face charges over a social media threat.

Police in the Fort Worth suburb of Richland Hills were told about an Instagram post showing a Richland Middle School student with a handgun. The caption read, “Don’t come to school tomorrow.”

Officers identified the boy in the photo and the student who took the photo. Both were arrested Wednesday night at their homes.

The gun turned out to be a toy.
