ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Police say a 16-year-old boy accused of making criminal threats involving possible violence at a high school has been arrested.

Roseville police say the youth, a former Roseville High School student, is suspected of setting up an Instagram account called "Coming4uRHS" and disseminating it to spread panic and fear at the high school.

Police say widely available photos of guns and other images from the Internet were used to populate the account.

The Sacramento Bee reports the youth was arrested Tuesday and taken to Placer County Juvenile Hall.

Roseville police says it began investigating after receiving calls and messages from parents about a rumor on Monday being spread through social media of threats of violence on the Roseville campus.
