SPARTANBURG, SC -- A student in South Carolina is facing charges after police say he threatened to add to the death and destruction, just one day after a mass school shooting in Florida.

Several sheriff's offices around Florida shared a screenshot of a Snapchat that says "round two of Florida tomorrow."

Investigators want to be clear about this.  They say the threat is not real, and it's not directed at any specific school.

Police in Spartanburg say a high school freshman posted the picture as a joke.

That student is now facing a juvenile charge of disturbing schools.
