Here is the original story:
PORT TOWNSEND — Police say a 14-year-old Port Townsend girl accused of making a Facebook threat to shoot a fellow student has been arrested.
Police said the girl was arrested Tuesday for investigation of felony harassment.
The comment posted Sunday night on a Facebook page called PTHS Confessions indicated the girl planned to bring a shotgun to Port Townsend High School to confront another student in response to other Facebook posts making fun of another girl, according to police.
Port Townsend police said the girl was taken to a juvenile detention center pending a court appearance. Police said she acknowledged making the comment — but told them it was a joke.
Officers said there was no indication she actually planned to carry out the threat.
School officials said all threats are taken seriously.
