Loudoun County Sheriff's Office seal

A Woodgrove High School student who allegedly posted a threat against the school last week on social media was served a petition for use of profane, threatening or indecent language on Monday by Loudoun County Juvenile Court Services, according to a Tuesday statement by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

The petition comes after the sheriff’s office launched an investigation after a threat was allegedly posted on social media by a student at the high school on Dec. 14.

According to a screenshot of the social media post obtained by the Times-Mirror, the student who made the post wrote that they would leave high school “with a bang.” The post went on to say “hopefully everyone I like makes it out cuz Ik the ppl I don’t won’t.”

The student was immediately identified, and an investigation was conducted in coordination with Woodgrove High School personnel and Loudoun County Public Schools Safety and Security, the Dec. 21 incident report reads.

The sheriff’s office would not release the juvenile’s name because the student is a minor.
