Teen Arrested For Making School Shooting Threats On Xbox Live
Posted on February 14, 2010 by Oscar Gonzalez

Reported earlier today at Kotaku.com, a San Antonio teen was arrested after discussing plans to shoot up his high school on Xbox Live. Local TV news,WOAI.com released these details of the incident:

- The teen said he planned to shoot a pregnant girl and best friend in the face while on Xbox Live with the Canadian teen that informed the authorities.

- The teen said he planned to get guns from a Marine Corps friend.

- He was planning out tactical details on how long he would have before cops would show up.

- He wanted to make headlines so he would be remembered forever.

- No word on what game they were playing.

- The high school was Marshall High School.

- Police notified the principal and student before arresting teen.

- When confronted, the teen said it was a stupid mistake and school official believe that the teen is remorseful and is no serious threat.

- Teen is suspended indefinitely from the school.

- He will be charged with false alarm/report charge. Normally this is a misdemeanor except in cases dealing with school which is considered a felony that can lead to state jail time.

For the news story video itself, I am sure it will be updated to WOAI.com soon.

UPDATE: Another news report, from KABB-TV, has been released stating that the game played by the teen was Modern Warfare 2. I can literally hear Jack Thompson licking his lips right now.

What do you think of Elder Scrolls Online

I'm enjoying every minute of it!
It's ok, but there are way too many bugs.
It stinks!
Haven't tried it, but will once the dust settles.
I despise MMORPGs.
