Bucks teen threatened peers, police say

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. -

Police say a Bucks County teenager has admitted to threatening to shoot his classmates and teachers.

Police say a 14-year-old boy was taken into custody on December 20th after students at Council Rock High School South accused the student of making threats. The incident happened a week after the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

The student is now at a juvenile detention center in Doylestown.

The district attorney's office says he faces charges of making terroristic threats and possession of a firearm by a minor.

Police say they found two guns in the teen's bedroom.

His mother also faces charges in case. Her lawyer says she had no knowledge of the threats.

The teen faces sentencing later this month.
