The Mississippi Department of Public Safety says 19-year-old Jacorey Tyrone Mitchell was arrested Wednesday and charged with making a terroristic threat online.

DPS says the Jackson Public School District and Capitol Police were made aware of a threat on social media pertaining to the Wingfield High School Graduation, scheduled for June 1.

“I am pleased with Capitol Police, the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, and Homeland Security for their work on this case,” said Capitol Police Chief Bo Luckey. “When we work together, we move closer toward our goal of making Jackson, Mississippi a safer place to be.”

This is a felony charge. No bond has been set.
