Police do not believe there is any threat of harm at Westwood today. The school will send information to parents about the incident.

Two youngsters who threatened on social media to do a mass shooting at Westwood Middle School because at least one of them didn’t want to go to school the next day were arrested Wednesday night by Gainesville police.

The boys, ages 15 and 11, were taken to the Alachua County Juvenile Assessment Center on charges of making written threats to kill or injure, police reported in a news release.

Police received a call at 7:44 p.m. Wednesday from two parents who learned of a threatening post on Instagram. The boys are accused of creating a fake Instagram account, writing that the person was going to shoot up Westwood and that a lot of people were going to die.

One of the boys did not want to go to school Thursday, so they conspired to make the threat, the release said.
