Teen charged with threatening to kill Belvedere students

Fairfax County Police have arrested a 14-year-old boy from Centreville for making disturbing threats to students at Belvedere Elementary School, the Washington Post reported June 24.

According to the news report, the teen was charged with allegedly creating a Twitter account in the name of Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter, and using to threaten to kill and rape Belvedere students. Lanza killed 26 students and adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012.

The Belvedere incident involved a single tweet, says Principal Cecelia Vanderhye. Additional charges may be pending, says police spokesperson Lucy Caldwell.
