A 13-year-old boy was arrested in Indiana after telling Siri that he was "going to shoot up a school.”

The boy was charged with intimidation after posting a screenshot of the exchange with Apple’s virtual assistant on social media, according to Fox News.

The Valparaiso Police Department posted about the incident on their Facebook page on Thursday, saying they determined the threat was not credible.

“These types of communications are taken very seriously by the Valparaiso Police Department and our community,” the department said.

Police said that the boy, who was visiting family in the area, was being detained at the Porter County Juvenile Detention Center.

Authorities also said that the teen had no access to weapons, and “posted the picture on social media as a joke.” It was reported to police by his social media contacts.
