An 18-year-old man has been charged with a misdemeanor after allegedly creating a Snapchat post threatening a shooting June 5 at a North Side high school.
Jovani Cruz, of Edgewater, was charged with electronic harassment threatening two or more people, Chicago police said.
Authorities were notified at 5:37 a.m. June 5 about the threat to the school in the 4000 block of North Ashland Avenue, according to police. Lake View High School is located at 4015 N. Ashland.
The suspect, who is a student at the school, was arrested on school grounds, police said.
“There is no safety threat to the school and an investigation is underway,” Principal Paul J. Karafiol wrote in a letter sent to parents June 5.
Karafiol said the student’s parent has been notified and the matter “is being handled according to CPS policy.”
