911 call released in Lake Mary High School shooting hoax

LAKE MARY, Fla. — A 12-year-old boy was arrested and charged Friday after a shooting hoax at Lake Mary High School.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office said there is no indication that shots were fired at Lake Mary High School.

Authorities said the boy called 911 about 12:15 p.m. and used a false name to report a shooting at the school. The boy told dispatchers he was calling from a school bathroom.

The call to 911 was released Saturday.

Dispatcher: What do you see right now?

Boy: There's a lot of blood all over the place (inaudible), so it's not safe.

Dispatcher: Where are you?

Boy: I'm in the bathroom so I could call you guys. No one knows what to do.

The call prompted an emergency response at the school, and authorities found no indication of a shooting.

Investigators said the juvenile is a student at a local middle school. He was charged with misuse of 911 and disruption of an educational institution. Both charges are misdemeanors.

The boy was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center.
