An arrest has been made after someone posted an online threat to shoot students at Skyline High School in Sammamish two weeks ago.

More details were expected at a Tuesday afternoon press conference, according to a King County Sheriff’s spokesperson.

Skyline was closed Sept. 20 after someone posted on the Internet a plot to shoot and kill students at the school. The author wrote about bringing his or her father's gun to school and shooting students until he or she ran out of ammunition.

The threat read, in part:

"The people at that school use their wealth and social status to act superior to others and they think it makes them better. The biggest offender of that would definitely be the jocks, I am going to start killing them first because they deserve it the most...”

The author went on to say he or she would kill others until running out of ammunition and is killed by authorities or takes his or her own life.

Eastside Catholic High School, less than a mile from Skyline, was closed the next day as a precaution.
