INTERLACHEN, Fla. (AP) — Sheriff's deputies rushed into a high school and arrested an 18-year-old student after photos posted on Snapchat showed him holding a gun with the caption "no school tomorrow?"

Putnam County Sheriff's deputies explained on Facebook that they removed Baylee Crowe from his Interlachen High School classroom on Thursday after learning about the potential threat.

He's charged with a second-degree felony for a written threat to kill, do bodily harm, or conduct a mass shooting or an act of terrorism.

Deputies later learned the pictures were taken at the Camp Blanding Museum and the gun wasn't in the teen's possession.

An arrest report says that when the teen was asked if a sibling had any involvement, Crowe told the investigators he would "kill all of you."
