An Omaha middle school student is facing charges because police say he threatened to kill some of his classmates who teased him.

A police report says the 12-year-old boy was booked into the Douglas County juvenile detention center after he made threats on Dec. 18 after being teased by his peers.

Police say a physical education teacher took the boy and two other students to the Lewis and Clark Middle School office after an altercation between the boys.

The boy who was arrested threatened to exceed the recent Newtown, Conn., school shooting where 20 children were killed.

The boy's mother told school officials that there weren't any guns in the home.

The boy has been charged with making terroristic threats. Police did not identify him.
