Yahoo! News is usually my go-to source for light and airy news stories throughout the work day—but today, I was flat out disturbed. When Yahoo reported that a 12-year old boy was arrested for making a fake call to the police regarding a school shooting, my heart literally sunk in my chest.
“He claimed he needed help because there was a shooter in the building with an AK-47 and that there were a couple of victims,” Studnicka said. When dispatchers asked for the caller’s cellphone number, he claimed it was a new phone and he didn’t know the number, the sheriff said.
