Student arrested after threat made on Snapchat against Sam Rayburn HS

PASADENA, Texas (KTRK) -- A high school in the Pasadena ISD has become the latest target of a threat.

The district said Monday morning that the Pasadena ISD police department received a tip about a threat on Snapchat against Sam Rayburn High School.

Pasadena ISD also added that the police department began to investigate immediately and arrested a student for making a terroristic threat.

It said in a statement: "As a precaution, additional district personnel and Pasadena ISD Police Department are on site today at Sam Rayburn High School."

This comes as several Houston-area schools have had to deal with threats over the last two weeks since the shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17 people.
