The Seguin Police Department says three teenage boys have been arrested and charged with making various threats against Seguin High School and the city's police department.

According to a post on the agency's Facebook page, the first arrest happened on May 18 when a 13-year-old boy reportedly said he wanted to "do a school shooting."

The threat was reported to a campus police officer and when the teen was questioned, he stated he was only joking. He was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats.

On Thursday, a 14-year-old boy was arrested when he allegedly told classmates that "Maybe I'll do a school shooting?"

When he was questioned about the statements, he told officers with the Seguin Police Department he would only follow through if someone made him "real mad." He was also charged with making terroristic threats.

Lastly, a 13-year-old boy was arrested on Thursday after police said he called the police station and threatened to blow it up. Officers said the teen's father was arrested the night before on unrelated assault charges.

Seguin Police Chief Bruce Ure said classes at Seguin High School were never interrupted and added that officials remained on heightened alert following the three arrests.

"We have zero-tolerance for this type of behavior and will hold anyone and everyone accountable. We continue to ask parents to truly parent because they can make a difference; and if you see something, say something," said Chief Ure.
