South Gwinnett student charged in connection with social media threat

A 16-year-old South Gwinnett High student faces charges in connection with a social media threat against the school, the principal said.

According to Channel 2 Action News, the student allegedly shared a video of a clip being put in a gun as someone says, “South Gwinnett, you’re next.” The student’s name has not been released.

“Acts that threaten the well-being of our school community will not be tolerated,” Principal Monique Lee said Saturday in a letter to parents. 

Multiple school threats and arrests have been reported recently, including a 15-year-old who is facing a weapon charge after allegedly bringing a gun to a Gwinnett County school earlier this month.
