BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Bakersfield police said officers arrested a high school student Tuesday for allegedly posting a social media threat against the Kern High School District.

In a social media post Tuesday evening, Bakersfield police said they received a tip from the FBI about a threat they found on Snapchat.

In a video, Bakersfield police Public Information Officer Sgt. Nathan McCauley said officers investigated and arrested the student for making criminal threats.

The threat appears to show a firearm and the words “dont go to school tmr.”

Bakersfield police did not specify a campus that may have been targeted and did not say where the student is enrolled.

McCauley asks if anyone sees any threats made towards schools to report it to law enforcement.
