Police say a 15-year-old has been arrested and is facing charges after making a threat against Commack Middle School.
The threat was made on May 31. A student reported the social media threat, and the principal called 911.
Police say the threat stated, "I'm going to remake Texas at CMS."
Police say the teen, who is from Bay Shore, has a friend who attends the school. The teen himself is not from Commack.
The principal of Commack Middle School called 911 after becoming aware of the threat.
The teen surrendered to police Friday.
He is charged with making a terroristic threat and aggravated harassment.
According to Suffolk police, there have been 16 reported threats and two arrests made since May 24.
Police say the 15-year-old had no access to weapons in his home, but officials say every reported threat will be taken seriously.
"Actions have consequences," says John Rowan, acting chief of detectives for Suffolk police. "These cases will be investigated and they will be prosecuted."
In a statement, the school says there are heightened Suffolk County Police Department patrols at district buildings throughout next week.
