Authorities say a 14-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with a shooting threat made to a Yuma school district.

Yuma police say they received a call late Tuesday night alerting them to a possible school shooting the next day at a school in the Crane School District.
    
The threat did not name a specific school.
    
Crane Middle School was put on "shelter in place" status on Wednesday as a result.
    
Officers looking into the validity of the threat say their investigation led them to the teen.
    
He has been booked into a Yuma County juvenile detention facility for threats, interference with or disruption of an educational institution, disorderly conduct and criminal nuisance.
