Two Butler County students are charged with inducing panic following a post to social media.
Sheriff Richard Jones said one Edgewood Middle School student posted a picture of a firearm on social media with the caption, “ready.”
Another student, “liked” the post, then texted a friend and stated he was going to bring a gun to school in his hoodie, according to investigators.
School officials contacted the sheriff's office.
"We take this very serious, it is not a joke," said Sheriff Jones. "I don’t understand why kids think they won’t get in trouble for such serious allegations. I encourage parents to talk to their kids, let them know if they make allegations of bringing dangerous weapons to school, they will go to jail."
