Pearland Juvenile Detained for Internet Post

PRESS RELEASE

PPDA Pearland youth is in custody this morning following an investigation into a post on YouTube.

The Pearland Police Department received numerous calls and messages regarding the post in which the poster stated that unless his comment was ‘liked’ he was going to ‘shoot up’ Pearland High School.

Detectives conducted a quick and thorough investigation and were able to identify the juvenile. The juvenile was taken into custody and is currently in the Brazoria County Juvenile Detention Center charged with Terroristic Threat.

All should be reminded that the internet is not a place where comments or threats can be idly made. There can be very adult consequences for making blind threats regardless of the forum.

Even though the youth is in custody, police plan on having extra officers at area schools as a precaution.
