NICEVILLE, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A 15-year-old Niceville High School student was arrested after being accused of threatening to shoot a classmate.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's Deputies arrested Keyvon Dawson Thursday and charged him with false reporting concerning the use of a firearm in a violent manner, a second degree felony.

According to a School Resource Officer, Dawson pushed the victim into a wall at school on August 14th and threatened to beat him up and kill him.

Deputies say he also told the student if he told anyone, he would shoot him with his Glock.

The SRO says the threat apparently came after the victim saw Dawson offering to sell an e-cigarette to other students.
