School massacre threat dismissed

Prosecutors have released a 17 year old boy who was briefly taken into custody over a threatened massacre at a school in Strömsund.

The threat was made in a Facebook video, in which the teen mentions automatic weapons and attacks on students and personnel at the Hjalmarströmmer school. After questioning the teen Tuesday afternoon, the police released him, saying there were no indications the threats would be carried out.
