ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Two teenagers have been arrested in Florida after authorities say they were caught on Snapchat posing with guns at an Orlando high school.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Jane Watrel tells news outlets the arrests came after a student saw images on the popular mobile app of 17-year-old Jeuriel Acevedo and 15-year-old Ricardo Arevalo, posing in a Cypress Creek High School bathroom with a handgun.
Watrel says one image showed the gun’s magazine and bullets.
A concerned parent saw the Snapchat video and contacted authorities, who worked to identify the suspects.
They face charges of possession of a firearm on school property and possession of a firearm by a minor.
Cypress Creek Principal John McHale says the teenagers didn’t pose a threat at any time to the school’s students.
