From the King County Sheriff's Office

 A 17 year old Shorewood High School Student was arrested Thursday night after school officials reported receiving information that the student was planning to “shoot up the school.”

Shorewood High School officials were alerted to a threat when a parent called and said rumors were circulating about a student planning a shooting at the school.

Shoreline Police investigated the threats and learned that the teen told other students “not to go to school tomorrow,” because he had planned on “shooting up the school tomorrow.” The teen also posted a message on Snapchat saying, “Goodbye SW.”

Police arrested the teen at his job in Lynnwood just after 7pm on Thursday. Investigators are not revealing more about the case but praise school officials, students and the parents who called in to report the threats.

“This is exactly what we tell people to do,” said Sheriff John Urquhart.  “If you see or hear something, say something.”

The teen was booked into the Youth Services Center for Investigation of Felony Threats and was expected to have his first appearance today.

The City of Shoreline contracts with the King County Sheriff’s Office for police services.
