TRENTON, Ohio - Three 17-year-old male students from the Edgewood School District were arrested Friday after making alleged threats of violence on Twitter, police say.
School officials contacted a school resource officer over concern of the threats, which were discovered on Twitter Friday morning before the start of the school day. Police say the students allegedly discussed using assault rifles, shotguns and explosives at Edgewood High School.
According to officials, two of the three suspects went to school Friday morning and were taken into custody.
"I was in the counselor's office and I just saw police coming in, there was a bunch of them and they took three kids out," said Edgewood student Katy Hooker.
Two suspects were charged with Delinquency by Reason of Menacing and were released to the custody of their parents. A third suspect was charged with Delinquency by Reason of Making Terroristic Threats, Inducing Panic and Menacing. That suspect is now being held at the Butler County Juvenile Detention Center.
Police say there is no indication the teens had possession or access to the weapons they mentioned.
The incident remains under investigation.
No other details are available at this time.
