The student sent several messages through the app, including one regarding a gun and that the student would “bring it to school and kill everyone,” a probable cause affidavit said.

The sheriff’s office said the student went to DeLaura Middle School.

News 6 is not naming the student due to the fact the child did not have access to any firearms.

The student faces a charge of sending a written threat to conduct a mass shooting.
