    SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. (KFSM) -- A 16-year-old Siloam Springs High School student was arrested Thursday morning after she allegedly made a violent threat against the school on Twitter.

    "The internet posting made reference to the Columbine school tragedy in 1999 and a threat to reenact Columbine," a report from the police department states.

    Police were notified of the threat around 6:30 a.m. The teenager was located at her home and taken into custody on a charge of felony Terroristic Threatening about an hour after the alleged threat was made.

    The suspect is being held at the Juvenile Detention Center in Bentonville.

    Extra officers were on campus throughout the day. No further incidents were reported. Police do not believe anyone else was involved in the threat.
