A 17-year-old Fulton youth was arrested late Wednesday without incident following the report of a suspicious message on the app Snapchat.

Callaway County Sheriff Clay Chism said his office was contacted by administrative staff of the South Callaway High School in Mokane. The administrative staff reported a Snapchat message had been sent to others by a student, identified as Gage Quick, 17.

The message was threatening in nature, portrayed Quick displaying a pistol, with the caption, "Y'all better be ready for what goin' down when get back to school."

Deputies immediately started making attempts to contact Quick and ultimately located him at a residence in Fulton, with the assistance of the Fulton Police Department, at 11:03 p.m. Wednesday.

Quick was transferred to the Callaway County Jail and booked/processed for making a terrorist threat, a second-degree felony. Quick was held on a court set bond and later released upon posting of the bond.

The investigation is ongoing and further charges could be forthcoming, Chism said. The Callaway County Sheriff's Office continues to work with all local school districts to address matters as these, which are taken very seriously by law enforcement and community members.
