19-Year-old jailed after posting school threat

A suburban Delray Beach man is in custody after the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said he posted on his Snapchat account, "On my way.School shooter."

The suspect, David Puy, 19, is a former Spanish River High School student, which prompted a robo call Wednesday morning from Principal William Latson.

Latson said in the call that Puy's threat did not name any school in Palm Beach County or elsewhere.

PBSO said a current student saw the post, alerted a teacher, who then contacted the Palm Beach County School Board Police.

Puy was located at this parents' home.

During an interview, PBSO said he admitted that he posted a "live feed" video with the caption mentioned. He denied any intent to commit a violent act and claimed he "wasn't thinking" when he made the post.

Puy was arrested Tuesday and booked at the Palm Beach County Jail at 5:43 p.m.

He last attended Spanish River High School in 2017, according to Latson.

Puy faces a charge of intimidate with a threat to kill or injure. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.

Good morning, Spanish River parents. This is Principal Latson with an important message for you.
