(Beach Park, IL) Criminal charges will be filed against a juvenile accused of posting a social media threat to his school. Lake County Sheriff’s officials say the action led to a lockdown and search of the Beach Park Middle School on Monday morning, though no weapons or other threatening items were found. The person who posted the threat was said to be an 11-year-old student, who was not in possession of any weapons. The case has been referred to juvenile court, but there was no word on what official charges the boy will face. He is also subject to school discipline, which was outlined Monday afternoon in a letter from the Superintendent to parents in the District.
