Teen Lights House On Fire Over Report Card
Reno, Nevada (CNN) - A bad report card sent a Nevada teen on a violent tirade that landed him in jail.
Reno police say the 13-year-old poured gasoline in his family's home to start a fire, and shot through a wall with his father's handgun.
He then called his parents and threatened them.
Apparently he was upset over having to switch schools, and his mid-term grades.
Firefighters responded but backed off when they saw the boy with the gun.
Police then arrived and took the teen into custody in the front yard.
The threats are really unpredictable and they can come from any person or any source and we just have to get ready to deal with it, be it a minor or juvenile or a group of individuals bent on doing harm.
The teen is facing arson charges as well as assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
He's being held in juvenile detention.
