The Florence Police Department is investigating threats made by a 13 year old against the City of Florence and even the President of the United States.
Threats were e-mailed to the city of Florence stating the threats.
Police say that the city also received one email message containing a very veiled threat against another school. Officials have not indicated which school was the target of the threat.
Florence police along with FBI and Secret Service agents interviewed the teen at his home. During the interview, agents took the Ockerman Middle School student's computer for further analysis.
Police are strongly emphasising that the e-mails were not directed at Ockerman Middle School or any student or faculty at the school. Ockerman Middle's principal is sending home letters to parents explaining the situation.
The teen has been charged with Terroristic Threatening in the second degree which is a felony.
