BILLINGS - A student at Billings Senior High School was arrested Tuesday morning after another student reported a threat made on social media.

Billings police said on Twitter the threat to "shoot up Senior" was "substantiated and the student as arrested, charged with intimidation and remanded to Youth Services."

Police said there were no current threats to schools.

Billings school officials later released this statement on their Facebook page:

Parents and Guardians,

This morning a Senior High student notified school officials of another student posting on social media, threatening to take a gun to shoot up Senior High. The post was confirmed to be made by a Senior High student; the student was arrested by the SRO. No weapons were found. School will operate under normal procedures.

No other information was immediately released.

The threat and arrest follow similar incidents at Billings schools and across the state last week, including an arrest of another Senior High student.
