PADUCAH (WSIL) — A 14-year-old is facing charges after threatening to bring a gun to school.

The 14-year-old told investigators the list wasn’t real, but admitted he had threatened to bring a gun to school.

The teen was taken into custody for second-degree terroristic threatening and transported to the McCracken County Juvenile Detention Center.
