Chesterfield County police said Sunday that they believe an 11-year-old boy called Salem Church Middle School on Friday and threatened to bomb the location.
Police said they identified the youth as a suspect and that the investigation indicates he used an app to attempt to disguise his identity to make the call.
Police said they brought the matter to the attention of the Chesterfield Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, seeking a petition from a court intake officer for threatening to bomb the school.
Police continue to investigate this and other similar incidents that occurred at the school last week. Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact the Chesterfield Police Department at (804) 748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 748-0660 or through the P3 app.
