Loudoun County, Va.- A high school student who made threats on social media towards Dominion High School in Sterling, Va. last week was charged today with making threats by writing or electronic message to kill or do harm. 

The 16-year-old from Sterling, whose name cannot be released because he is a juvenile, was identified on May 2 after a Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officer learned of the social media posts.  Although there were firearms located inside the home that belonged to a relative, the investigation determined there was no threat to the school. 
 
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case in coordination with Loudoun County Public Schools.

The teenager is being held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center.
