A 16-year-old boy was arrested in Burbank Tuesday on suspicion of using Twitter to make threats against a classmate.
The tweeted threat "indicated a desire to harm the student and referenced past national school shootings," according to Burbank Police, who say both the suspect and the victim attend John Burroughs High School. Their identities have not been revealed because they are minors.
Police launched an investigation into the allegations, and interviewed the teen suspect, who was subsequently arrested for making "Terrorist Threats" on Twitter.
