Gulf Coast High student made threats against school, CCSO says
Collier County sheriff's deputies were planning to arrest a 16-year-old student from Gulf Coast High School on Tuesday afternoon after they say the individual sent threatening messages on social media.
The 11th-grader sent another student Snapchat messages articulating threats of violence against the school and individuals, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
The individual will be charged with writing threats to kill or do bodily injury, said Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Michelle Batten via email.
The Sheriff's Office did not divulge other information, such as the name and gender of the student.
