A 16-year-old Warren County boy was ordered today to write a letter of apology and serve 25 hours of community service while on probation for making false alarms on Jan. 30 by sending his friend a social media message indicating he wanted to “shoot up” their school on Jan. 30.
The boy, a resident of Hamilton Twp. and student of Little Miami High School, was among those who passed polygraphs while their cases were pending following the deadly school shooting on Feb. 14 in Parkland, Fla.
He was arrested after sending a message to his friend that said, “I wanna to shoot up this school so bad tbh (to be honest),” according to court documents.
On Wednesday, Judge Joe Kirby also barred the boy from access to weapons, suspended 45 days in detention and ordered the boy to attend school and his parents to see that he attend counseling or other sessions required as a result of the case.
