PORT TOWNSEND, Wash. (AP) - Police say a 14-year-old Port Townsend, Wash., girl accused of making a Facebook threat to shoot a fellow student has been arrested.

KOMO-TV reports the girl was arrested Tuesday for investigation of felony harassment. KOMO says the comment posted Sunday night on a Facebook page called PTHS Confessions indicated the girl planned to bring a shotgun to Port Townsend High School to confront another student who was bullying her.

Port Townsend police say the girl was taken to a juvenile detention center pending a court appearance. Police say she acknowledged making the comment but told them it was a joke. They say there's no indication she actually planned to carry out the threat.

School officials say all threats are taken seriously.
