ROCHESTER HILLS (WWJ) - A 15-year-old Oakland County student could face charges for allegedly threatening to shoot up his school.

Deputies were called to Stoney Creek High School in Rochester Hills on Thursday and were met by administrators who said the student had written in his class workbook that he was going to shoot up the school on January 25 with a Glock 19 semi-automatic pistol.

A teacher discovered the statement during the student’s daily classroom activities, according to police. 

During an interview with detectives, police say the student confessed to writing the statement and stated that while he wished to disrupt school operations, he never had any intention of shooting up the school.

The student's Auburn Hills home was searched with permission from his father, and police located two firearms locked in the father's safe. Both weapons were turned over to detectives for safekeeping. 

The student has been suspended from school and turned over to his father. A juvenile petition will be forwarded the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office for possible criminal charges. 

The incident remains under investigation.
