MULVANE, Kan. (AP) -- Two Mulvane High School students are charged with criminal threat after they allegedly made threats on social media to ``shoot up'' the high school.

Mulvane Police Chief Don Williams says the two were arrested Monday morning before school started. Someone who saw the threats on Twitter notified authorities.

Williams says the students told officers they were joking and had no plans to harm anyone. He says the students didn't have any weapons when they were arrested.

District spokesman Tom Keil says school proceeded normally after officers determined the school was safe.
