KEIZER — Police in the small Willamette Valley town of Keizer, Ore., say a 13-year-old boy accused of threatening to shoot other students at his middle school has been arrested for investigation of disorderly conduct.

Keizer police Capt. Jeffrey Kuhns said Monday that a Whiteaker Middle School resource officer began investigating late last week after the principal told him about the threat reportedly made to other students.

The boy denied making the comments but was suspended while the resource officer finished his investigation. Kuhns says the resource officer arrested the boy Friday after talking with other students and looking at information on the teen’s Facebook page.
