Boy makes plea in school shooting threat case

PONTIAC (AP) - A 14-year-old who was arrested after authorities say he threatened a shooting at his suburban Detroit high school is expected to find out next month whether he'll stay in juvenile detention.

The Oakland Press of Pontiac reports he pleaded no contest last week to a false report of an act of terrorism. A disposition hearing is May 12.

The boy could be sent home under supervision at that point, but it's possible he could remain in confinement until the age of 19. The boy's lawyer Deanna Kelley says he's "a good kid" who has "never been in any type of trouble at school or otherwise."

The Oakland County sheriff's department says he threatened an attack at Milford High School. Investigators say authorities removed guns from his Highland Township home.
