Police have arrested a teen who they say made a social media bomb threat to a Miami-Dade school Monday morning.
The 18-year-old suspect, identified as Kenly Serge Dorvil, is accused of making the threat to William H. Turner Technical Arts High School on Northwest 19th Avenue, Miami-Dade Public Schools Police officials said.
Police said the teen was upset with some students at the school and thought making the threat would negatively affect them.
The threat was made on Twitter and police said they received many calls. The school was never placed on lockdown, officials said.
