"Fake threats like these will warrant real regrets with arrests," said White Settlement Police Chief Christopher Cook. "We will not tolerate social media posts that threaten other students, faculty or the community and work closely with White Settlement ISD to mitigate these types of incidents."

The teen was taken to the Tarrant County Juvenile Detention Center.
