A 16 year old James M. Bennett student has been charged with a threat of mass violence after social media posts were brought to the Wicomico Sheriff’s office’s attention on Thursday.  Complaints to the Sheriff’s office showed the teen posted a picture of a firearm and a tactical vest with comments that implied a desire to commit a shooting in the school.  Deputies were able to identify the author of the post, interview him and detain him at the Lower Shore Children’s Center.
