New York teen charged with threatening a school shooting

A 17-year-old boy from Long Island has been charged for threatening to go on a shooting spree at his old high school on the anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, the New York Times reported.
Nathan Myres, of North Massapequa, was arraigned on a charge of making a terroristic threat on Saturday.
He attended Plainedge High School until he transferred to a special needs program earlier this year.
A teacher heard several students discussing a rumor that was circulating the school that a former student was planning an attack. The teacher told the principal, who in turn called the police.
Detective Lt. Kevin Smith said police have not found any weapons and it is possible Myers was just trying to scare former classmates.
Myers remained in custody Saturday, where his bail was set at $25,000, the Associated Press said.
