Two Teens Charged for Threatening to 'Shoot Up' Two Warren County Schools

Posted: Updated:

Two teens have been charged for making verbal threats to "shoot up" separate Warren County schools Tuesday.

Troopers were called to Sheffield Area Middle-High School around 10 a.m. to investigate the threat made there. A 14-year-old male from Sheffield was taken into custody to face terroristic threats and disorderly conduct charges as a juvenile. He appeared in front of a district judge and was taken to an adolescent center in Oil City.

A second threat was reported at Warren Area High School at 3:05 p.m. State Police arrested a 16-year-old male from Warren on terroristic threats and disorderly conduct charges. He was then taken into custody by Warren County Juvenile Probation.

Troopers said they take a "zero-tolerance approach" to any threat reported to State Police and will evaluate the validity of each threat to see if an individual can be held accountable.
