Kentucky State Police say a 15-year-old is now in a juvenile detention center following a threat made at North Laurel Middle School.

This comes three days after a 14-year-old was accused of making the same threat at the school. That individual was also arrested.

Troopers say both made the threats on social media, and both are charged with second-degree terroristic threatening.

Kentucky State Police worked with Laurel County school authorities in the investigation.
