A 16-year-old Ball High School student was arrested Friday and charged with making a terroristic threat against the school in a social media post.
The Galveston Independent School District announced the arrest in a press release late Friday. Officials did not immediately respond to a request for more information.
A 16-year-old girl made a social media post that showed a photo of a weapon and wrote "Ball High here I come," the district said.
Police were notified about the post, began investigating and identified the student, officials said.
But the district on Friday did not publicly identify the student.
Several local school districts have experienced shooting scares in the past three weeks after the school shooting on Feb. 14 in Parkland, Fla., that ended with 17 people dead.
On Wednesday, Santa Fe High School was put on lockdown after a loud popping sound near the school triggered fears of a shooting.
On Feb. 23, a social media rumor that spread in Galveston about a threat made against Ball High School led to more than a quarter of students staying home from school, officials said.
On Feb. 20, a Hitchcock High School student was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat, after he allegedly got up in front of the class and said he would turn the place into a "Florida situation", police said.
