Ballston Spa teen arrested after alleged school shooting threat

A 14-year-old child has been charged in connection with a threat made against the Ballston Spa School District over the weekend.

The teenager is now charged with providing a false written statement, making a threat of mass harm, and falsely reporting an incident.

The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office says someone sent a message on Snapchat, threatening to carry out a school shooting.

A parent reported that their child got a message Sunday night, and a heavy police presence was seen on the school campus Monday morning.
