Teen Faces Charge of Threatening to Harm Students, officials

SPRINGFIELD, Fla. (AP) - A Panama City teenager is scheduled to appear before a judge on a charge of making a written threat against classmates and teachers.

The Bay County Sheriff's Office arrested the 14-year-old boy Wednesday after the FBI deciphered a coded note that allegedly detailed his attack. His name is being withheld because he is a minor.

However, investigators have not found any weapons or other evidence that the teen intended to carry out the threats.

He's being held at a juvenile detention facility.
