A teenager is behind bars after he allegedly posted on Facebook that he was going to bring a gun to Weslaco High School.

Weslaco police confirmed that the teen has been arrested.

It all started with a fight at the school between two rival car clubs on Thursday afternoon.

One of the teens allegedly posted that he was going to bring a gun to school.

Rumors about the post created panic among students and parents and prompted police presence at the school on Friday.

The teen's name is not being released at this time but he is expected to be arraigned before a judge.
