WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) — Warren police say a 13-year-old 8th grader has been arrested in connection with an online shooting threat that closed Beer Middle School Tuesday.

There is no word yet on possible charges the boy could be facing.

The middle school is in the Warren Consolidated School District and is located at Martin Road in Warren.

In an email to parents, the superintendent said the threat was reported to OK2SAY, the state anonymous tip line, as well as the Warren Police Department.

The decision to close school was made out of an "abundance of caution."
