Troopers were called to the school late Thursday afternoon and say they found credible evidence of a threat.

“This individual made threats that he was going to one of the schools, shoot the school up, and actually target a certain race,” said Tpr. Robert Broadwater, of Pennsylvania State Police.

Police say he’s facing charges of terroristic threats, risking a catastrophe and ethnic intimidation.

State police say it appears the boy did not have the actual means to follow through on his threat.
