MINOT, N.D. — Police in Minot say a 14-year-old middle school student has been arrested after he threated to orchestrate a shooting at a school.

Minot Police Department Capt. John Klug in a statement says the adolescent was arrested at 5 p.m. Thursday on three counts of terrorizing. He is being held at the Ward County Juvenile Detention Center.

Klug says the student made the threat at Ramstad Middle School.

Police say the department received information about a “potential threat” at the school Wednesday evening, but officers were unable to immediately verify the information. In response, several officers were assigned to Ramstad and Jim Hill middle schools Thursday.

Police say the incident remains under investigation, but the department believes the students are safe to attend school as scheduled.
