A 16-year-old boy was arrested Monday after authorities say he made threats to "shoot up" William Blount High School, the Blount County Sheriff's Office said.
According to the sheriff's office, a school resource officer found computer search information related to school shootings on the student's school-issued Chromebook. The officer determined the student did not have access to weapons at home, the sheriff's office said.
The student, who is a sophomore at William Blount, was arrested Monday and is charged with being delinquent by false report for making threats about shooting up the school.
The boy is being held in the Blount County juvenile facility while he waits for a detention release hearing.
This is the 11th arrest of a student in East Tennessee and Southeast Kentucky for making school threats since a shooting at a Florida high school on February 14 were 17 people were killed.
