(WMUR) — METHUEN, Mass. —Four Methuen students were arrested within the past week, including three who allegedly made threats to commit violence.
On Friday, two Tenney Middle School students were charged with threatening to "shoot up the school," police said. A 14-year-old was charged with making the threat and a 13-year-old charged after saying he would supply the weapons.
While police do not believe the plot was serious or that the students could have carried it out, "we take threats of school violence very seriously," Chief Joseph Solomon said. "There is simply no such thing as joking about shooting up your school."
