LAWRENCEVILLE - Three students at Mountain View High School in Lawrenceville are in trouble for a Facebook post that threatened violence against the school.

Gwinnett Police were called when the post was brought to the attention of school officials Monday. Authorities said the post read in part, "So me and a friend of mine were bored and we started devising ways of mass murder at school."

The post further described plans to outfit students with bombs and detonate the bombs at lockers inside the school.

Police determined the threats were idle, so no criminal charges were brought for the Facebook post. One of the students involved does face charges for bringing an air rifle to school, however.
