WAGONER — A 17-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday on allegations that he threatened to go on a shooting rampage after stealing a gun.
The teenager, whose name was not released, was apprehended in the Fort Gibson area. He was booked into the Wagoner County Jail on complaints of larceny of a firearm, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and making terroristic threats, Maj. Gary Handley said.
The boy threatened to go on a shooting spree because “he felt the world was going to end soon,” anyway, Handley said in a press release.
The teen said he was going to “track down the people he hated no matter how far he had to go,” Handley said.
When he was arrested, the teenager was in possession of a controlled dangerous substance, Handley said.
He praised deputies’ quick response in locating the juvenile before any acts of violence occurred.
