Boy, 13, charged with threatening to shoot up Ballston Spa school

A 13-year-old boy is facing charges for allegedly threatening Ballston Spa Middle and High schools last month.

The boy – a middle schooler – said on Snapchat was going to shoot up the school, police said.

He’s now charged with both making a threat of mass harm and making a punishable false written statement – both misdemeanors.

The Saratoga County Probation Department is now handling the case.
