Student Makes Online School Shooting Threat

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash-- A student is caught threatening to shoot classmates at Kamiakan High School. The 14 year-old boy made comments online on a game called Rune Scape. He was playing with a 12 year-old girl from Eugene, Oregon.
She alerted the game's security personnel  in Cambridge, England. Rune Scape security called Kennewick Police and gave the name and address of the teen. He was arrested for felony harrassment.

"It's very unusual we haven't had much experience with dealing with online games especially one in another country for that matter. They are very large it sounds like 5 million paid subscribers around the world, a very large game. They take these things very serious," said Sgt. Ken Lattin.

The Kennewick School District has not decided what to do with the student.
