BROOKLYN — A 16-year-old student was arrested after he threatened to shoot up his Gravesend high school early Tuesday morning, according to police.

The teen posted the threat to John Dewey High School on Facebook at about 1:30 a.m., an NYPD spokeswoman said. Another student saw the post and alerted a family member who then called 911.

The 16-year-old was later taken into custody and charged with making a terroristic threat and aggravated harassment.

Investigators did not find any weapons at his home, the New York Post first reported.
