PORT ST. LUCIE — A 14-year-old boy was taken into custody Friday in connection with a threat made on social media toward his middle school Tuesday, according to police. 

His arrest comes just two days after a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 were killed. 

After being suspended for 10 days from Southport Middle School, the Port St. Lucie teen wrote on his social media account, “I might get expelled. I hope I do so I can shoot up the School,” according to Port St. Lucie police.

Threats, hoaxes, anxiety and arrests: An uneasiness in schools after Parkland shooting




The day after a gunman fatally shot 17 people at a South Florida high school, many of Americas teenagers went to school, as always, returning to routines that usually felt safe.

But on campuses across the country, a palpable uneasiness descended on faculty, staff and students, who struggled with news out of Parkland, where police say Nikolas Cruz walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR-15 and opened fire.

Administrators, police and school resources officers were on high alert, too, looking out for “copycats” students motivated by the shooters actions to threaten or engage in similar behavior. More than 10 schools across the country reported threats of violence Thursday, prompting officials to arrest students and put buildings on lockdown; some districts even canceled classes.

In Spartanburg, South Carolina, a ninth-grade student at Broome High School was arrested after he allegedly posted a photo of himself on Snapchat wearing a partial mask and holding what appeared to be an assault rifle.

The photo was captioned, “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow,”

Blac Youngsta Lil Pump is Getting Done Dirty … ‘F*** tha Police!!!’


Lil Pump and his mother are getting a raw deal from law enforcement … according to his homie, Blac Youngsta, who has some choice words for cops. Three to be exact. 

We got Youngsta outside Ciroc Studios in Hollywood, and he took a break from plugging his new record to support Pump. TMZ broke the story … Pump was arrested for firing a handgun while in his L.A. apartment. The 17-year-old rapper’s mom could also be in trouble for leaving a minor home alone with a gun and weed.

Youngsta thinks law enforcement’s version of the story is total BS, and didn’t pull punches when we asked for his opinion.

We’d say BY is starting the “Free Lil Pump” campaign, but Pump got out of jail yesterday — with a GPS ankle monitor — and bragged about his “rich lawyer.”

Bonus: Watch for Youngsta’s baller exit in the lambo. L.A. traffic’s a bitch!

Suspect Confessed to Police That He Began Shooting Students ‘in the Hallways’


For the latest on the Florida school shooting, read Friday’s live updates.

PARKLAND, Fla. — The suspect in one of the deadliest school shootings in modern American history confessed to the police that he “began shooting students that he saw in the hallways and on school grounds,” according to a police arrest report released Thursday.

The suspect, Nikolas Cruz, 19, carried a black duffel bag and backpack, where he hid loaded magazines, the report said. He arrived at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in an Uber at 2:19 p.m. on Wednesday and pulled out a semiautomatic AR-15 rifle, according to details described by the authorities at a news conference on Thursday.

Mr. Cruz also shot people inside five classrooms on the first and second floors of the freshman building. He eventually discarded the rifle, a vest and ammunition in a stairwell, blended in with fleeing students and got away, the authorities said.

After leaving the school, Mr. Cruz walked to a Walmart, and bought a drink at a Subway. He also stopped at a McDonald’s. He was arrested by the police without incident as he walked down a
