Juvenile's alleged shooting threats may have a lasting impact

Due to the alarming number of shootings that have taken place across the country in recent years, many people are understandably cautious when they catch wind of a possible threat. Even if the threat comes from a juvenile, it must be taken seriously, especially if it occurs at a school. As a result, an arrest could take place, and the situation could have a lasting impact on the child.

It was recently reported that a juvenile in Florida was taken into custody for such threats. According to reports, the boy was in a classroom when his teacher and other classmates purportedly heard him saying that he may be a prospective shooter. The teacher told the boy to stop talking about that subject, but he allegedly then pointed and made shooting noises.

The teacher presumably informed the school resource officer of the situation, and the officer came to the classroom and made sure that the student did not have any weapons. The boy was then taken into custody and taken to a juvenile detention center. It was not mentioned whether any charges had been filed against the student, whose age was given as 15 years old.

Even making threats can have a lasting impact on a juvenile child's life, and it is important that the boy involving in this Florida incident and his parent understand the details of his predicament. If charges are filed, they will undoubtedly want to know the best ways to defend against them. Gaining information and assistance from local legal resources may prove wise during this time.
