LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– A teenager is in custody in New York after they allegedly made a threat that was mistaken to be intended for two schools in Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police were originally investigating a terroristic threatening complaint at Spencer County High School.

Police say the social media threat appeared to suggest a possible shooting at the school, as well as Waggener High School in Louisville.

Investigators later determined the threat originated from Staten Island and were intended for schools in New York.

A 16-year-old there was arrested.
