NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Two more students have been arrested and charged after sending messages via social media threatening to do harm at their schools, according to the St. Tammany Sheriff's Office.

A 13-year-old former Fontainebleau Junior High student, who was already expelled from the school for an unrelated issue, was arrested for terrorizing after he sent a message to fellow students Thursday saying he planned to "shoot up" the school Friday, according to the report.

The sheriff's office also said an 11-year-old student at Abita Springs Middle School was arrested for terrorizing Thursday after he sent a message through his parent's social media account saying he planned to "blow the top off" his school Friday.

Both students were booked into the Florida Parish Juvenile Detention Center.
