INDIANAPOLIS -- A student at Perry Meridian High School was arrested Sunday night after an threat against the school was posted on Twitter.

Families with students enrolled at Perry Meridian High School received a message from the superintendent Sunday evening, saying the district had received a cyber threat.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department found and arrested a juvenile. He was questioned at IMPD's headquarters and released to his parents, police say.

Investigators will present their findings to the prosecutor's office for a final decision on criminal charges.

School is in session Monday morning.

Superintendent Tom Little notified the community at 6:30 a.m., saying the student has been suspended from school, pending expulsion proceedings.
