Niceville, FL – A student at Ruckel Middle School in Niceville has been arrested on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm by a minor and sending a threat.
The School Resource Officer learned Thursday, January 11, 2018 that 15-year old Robert Cameron Blalock had used the social media app Snapchat to post a photo of a handgun with the message “Cameron is about to go on a rampage”.
Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the teen’s Niceville home where he ultimately admitted having a loaded revolver in his dresser and a loaded rifle in his closet.
Blalock also admitted posting the Snapchat message, saying he hoped a specific student would see it and be afraid because the other boy had made him mad at school today.
The teen’s mother says she had no knowledge of her son’s possession of the handgun.
