ODESSA, TX (KWES) - An Odessa High School student is facing charges after making a threatening phone call.

The student left a voicemail for office staff at Odessa High School, claiming she was going to shoot up the school.

A second voicemail was left saying the threat was just a joke, but ECISD and police are taking the threat seriously.

The 15-year-old will be charged with threat of exhibition of a firearm on school property.

Officials are hoping this will discourage others from making similar threats.
