MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 17-year-old Minnetonka High School student has been arrested after he allegedly made a threatening post on social media involving his school, according to police.

Minnetonka police say they were notified Monday evening about the suspicious and threatening post, shared via Snapchat, involving the school.

At 5 a.m. Tuesday, the investigation led police to the student, who admitted to making the post. He was subsequently arrested without incident.
