GULF SHORES, Ala. Two Gulf Shores High School students are in a lot of trouble after faculty and students mistook firecrackers for gunfire.
The raucous created a panic that injured at least two students and put the school in a lockdown mode for about a half-hour.
Baldwin County public schools spokesman Terry Wilhite said yesterday's (Tuesday) prank occurred six months after two teens were accused of planning a mass shooting at the school.
Gulf Shores Police said a 15-year-old was arrested shortly after the incident which occurred about 10 a-m. The juvenile was charged with making a terrorist threat, a felony and was ordered held in the Baldwin County Juvenile Detention Center in Bay Minette.
He is also charged with reckless endangerment and Wilhite said the teen will be expelled.
A second 15-year-old was also arrested and charged with menacing. That teen was released into the custody of his parents.
Police said a student required several stitches for a cut on her face and another had a sprained ankle.
