CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A Charlotte teenager has been arrested after police say he made a threat against a local high school on his calculator.

According to officials from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, a student was arrested on Thursday after he reportedly made a threat against Olympic High School in southern Mecklenburg County.

The 16-year-old student reportedly threatened that "a Sandy Hook would happen at the school," referring to the recent mass school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.

Concerned parents, who heard about the threat on Friday morning, were at the school picking up their students.

School officials told WBTV that the student was arrested. He was charged with felony False Reporting Mass Violence Against an Educational Property and Misdemeanor Communicating Threats.

CMS says it investigated the incident and there were no injuries or evidence of any danger.

Officers from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police were at the high school on Friday morning, just in case.
