Aurora police: Teen faces charges after making threat against high school
Aurora police say a 15-year-old boy faces charges of disorderly conduct after he created a social media post, using the name of a classmate, to threaten a shooting at West Aurora High School.
The classmate was unaware of his name being used, and both he and his family were cooperative, police said.
According to an Aurora Police Department Facebook post, the department is working with the Kane County State's Attorney's office as it seeks felony charges. The post appeared online late Thursday.
Police said anyone with information should call detectives at (630) 256-5500 or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000. Callers to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and can qualify for a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest.
