- A high school student was arrested after writing on social media that he planned on “blowing up” his Tampa school, police said.
Tampa police said they began investigating the threat Thursday night and identified the 15-year-old Middleton High School student as the suspect.
Initially, they said, the teen denied writing the message.
An officer continued questioning the teen, and, with the help of the teen’s father, he eventually admitted to posting the message, detectives said.
The teen told officers he didn’t mean it, they said.
