METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

Two students at Grace King High School in Metairie have been arrested for terrorizing after allegedly sharing a threatening photograph on social media.

Thursday morning, school administrators told the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office about the post.

The photograph showed one of the two students posing in front of a whiteboard with a drawing of him with the words "future school shooter" above the drawing. 

Following a discussion of the recent school shooting in Florida, one student remarked that the second student looked like someone who would conduct a school shooting, according to a JPSO spokesperson.

He then drew and captioned a picture of the student on the board before the second student posed next to it and allowed his photograph to be taken. The student who created the drawing later shared the photograph on social media.

The JPSO said the students were located and admitted to the drawing and social media post, but never planned on hurting anyone.

The sheriff's office did not release the ages of the students.
