A Boca Raton Community High School student has been taken out of class and ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after being accused of posting threatening pictures on Instagram.
The sophomore allegedly posed with what appears to be a machete in one shot, while he makes the shape of a gun with his fingers in another. The caption underneath the pictures were the names of girls the boy goes to school with.
Parents of students at the school say the boy is known to have mental issues.
Administrators sent out a RoboCall to parents over the weekend that the Sheriff's Office had been sent to the boy's home and extra security was at school on Monday.
The School District Police Department has taken over the case.
