Brandon police have arrested a 14-year-old boy in connection with Thursday's school threat. Police say a message was posted on social media, between October 29th & 31st, that read "I am the school shooter or tomorrow bros let's go" - and it included a photo. Officers used that pic to track him down, and found the suspect wearing the same clothes as the image in the post. The teen reportedly told police he didn't have any weapons, and had no intention of doing any harm. No weapons were found in a search of the boy's home. He's scheduled to appear in court December 3rd.
