15-year-old Pasco teen charged with second-degree felony for threat

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. -- On Nov. 1, 2016, 15-year-old Corey Fox made comments about shooting up the school to two classmates. He went into further details, detailing how he could get a gun and when the perfect time for him to strike would be.

He went into more detail, telling the students who would be shot and who would be safe. One of the classmates came forward to report it to the headmaster, Ben Davis, who later contacted the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. 

The PCSO began to investigate after these reports, removing Fox from school immediately. Fox told authorities that he was not serious about his threats and did not intend to frighten anyone.

Fox has since been arrested and charged with a second-degree felony for threatening to use a firearm in a violent manner. The charge comes after the start of the new state law under SB 436 that started on Oct. 1.
