The Desoto County Sheriff’s department has confirmed that two high school students were charged with cyberstalking.
The two 16-year-old boys were charged in North Mississippi for threatning violence on social media.
According to officials, the students made threats against students at Olive Branch’s Center Hill High School, and could both face legal and disciplinary consequences. One image showed threats of racial violence accompanied by a rifle, which officials describe as cyberstalking.
The students were taken into custody on Saturday, just three days after the school shooting in Florida.
