NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A teenage boy from Queens found himself in serious trouble this week, after the Royal Canadian Mounted Police caught a death threat directed at his school’s dean that he posted on Facebook, according to a published report.

The 14-year-old boy had been suspended from Richmond Hill High School over claims that he stole a set of Dr. Dre Beats headphones from his classmate, and responded on Facebook by threatening to “walk into my school and shoot this stupid b***h for a dean that kicked me out of school,” according to a New York Daily News report.

The RCMP happened upon the post as they searched for information about a school of the same name in Ontario, and tipped off the NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force, the newspaper reported.

NYPD officers came to the Richmond Hill freshman’s house and took him into custody, the newspaper reported.

The boy, identified by the newspaper as Victor Roa, was charged as a juvenile with making terroristic threats and aggravated harassment, the newspaper reported. He told the newspaper he was just blowing off steam and does not even own a gun, the newspaper reported.
