A 15-year-old student arrested at Maumelle High School is accused of making threats involving a firearm, authorities said Monday.

Authorities believed the information was credible and took the teen, whose name was not released because he was a minor, into custody, according to a Facebook post by the Maumelle Police Department.

Police said the student was arrested after police received initial information from law enforcement “that a student on campus had a gun.” The department later clarified that no weapon was found on campus.

The student was charged with terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct, according to police.

Authorities asked anyone with information about this incident to contact police at (501) 851-1337.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated a gun was found at Maumelle High School in connection with the arrest of a 15-year-old student. Maumelle police and school officials said no firearm was found at the campus.
