ADA, Okla. (AP) – Pontotoc County authorities have arrested two 14-year-old boys they say posted threats online involving the Byng school district.

Pontotoc County Sheriff John Christian said Tuesday that the suspects posted a video of a rap song on Facebook last week that included them threatening to shoot an assistant principal and sexually assault other school officials. Christian said that one of the suspects claimed that he had an AR-15 rifle under his bed and said he planned to shoot several people at school.

The Ada News reports one teen was arrested Saturday and the other was arrested Monday.

Authorities say a search warrant was executed at one teenager’s homes and two guns were seized.

Christian says the teenagers said they did not plan on carrying out their threats. The sheriff’s office is seeking charges of creating a terrorism hoax and violating Oklahoma’s computer crimes law.
