ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene juvenile is charged with threatening to commit a mass shooting at a local high school.

17-year-old Cody Lane White was arrested December 20th.

Abilene police say White posted on Facebook that he intended to commit a mass shooting at a school.  That prompted authorities to increase police presence at all Abilene school campuses on Friday, December 21.

Police say White confessed to posting the comment.

He faces charges of false report, a state jail felony as the threat was made against a public school.
