FREDERICK, Md. - Authorities say charges are pending against the person who threatened violence against students at a Frederick County school.
Police say "a credible threat" originated from a social media posting involving students at Monocacy Middle School.
Officers say that they have identified a primary suspect in the investigation and charges are pending.
"Throughout the investigation, officers from FPD determined that, while a plan was verbalized to act on this threat, the suspects did not have access to the means to carry out the plan," Frederick Police Department officials said in a statement.
Officials say they do not believe there is an active threat against the school, but will have an increased presence at the school in the coming days.
