A 15-year-old male Wylie High School student was arrested Tuesday, Nov. 29, because of a threat made to shoot another student.
School resource officers at the school were notified of the incident where a student pointed a pen at a female student, holding it like a gun. He then asked the other student if he should bring a gun tomorrow and shoot her, according to a Dec. 2 news release from the Wylie Police Department.
The male student was taken into custody on the charge of threatening to use a firearm in a school. He is currently being held at the Collin County Juvenile Detention Facility.
Because the student is a minor, his name will not be released, police said.
