Broward school district police and the Broward Sheriff's Office are investigating a Facebook post that included threatening language involving Cooper City High School.
Neither agency would release details of the post, but a news release from Sheriff Al Lamberti said BSO was alerted Wednesday by a school system administrator. Investigators identified the poster as a 14-year-old student and contacted him and his parents, "who were cooperative and concerned."
The boy was not identified. His father surrendered his firearms for safekeeping and the boy was taken for a psychiatric evaluation, under the state's Baker Act, BSO said.
"No one was harmed, nor was anyone in imminent danger at any time, thanks in large part to the response of Broward County school officials, law enforcement and the families involved," Lamberti said in the release.
The school district said in a news release that there were no further safety concerns.
