Florida Teens Arrested After Posing on Snapchat With Gun at School

The teenagers didn't pose a threat to other students, the school's principal said

Two teenagers have been arrested in Florida after they were caught on Snapchat posing with a gun at an Orlando high school, authorities said.

Orange County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Jane Watrel said the arrests came after a student saw images on the popular mobile app of a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old posing in a Cypress Creek High School bathroom with a handgun.

Watrel says one image showed the gun's magazine and bullets.

A concerned parent saw the Snapchat video and contacted authorities, who worked to identify the suspects.

They face charges of possession of a firearm on school property and possession of a firearm by a minor.

Cypress Creek Principal John McHale says the teenagers didn't pose a threat at any time to the school's students.
