Police say six guns were removed from the home of a Bloomington youth who threatened a copycat school shooting, while students in two other Indiana cities have been arrested for making school violence threats

Bloomington police say the Bloomington South High School student is undergoing an evaluation after telling another student on Monday he had a gun in his locker. The Herald-Times reports police say a search found he had no weapons at school and that the seized guns didn't belong to him.

The News and Tribune reports a 15-year-old Jeffersonville High student posted his threat on Facebook. The Tribune-Star reports authorities say the 17-year-old Terre Haute South student made a written threat found Monday at school.
