Hueytown Police Chief ..., 10 Sept 2015 [cached]
Hueytown Police Chief Chuck Hagler told that the 15-year-old boy, whose name is not being released because of his age, told his Periscope followers he had been recruited by ISIS and that he was going to attack the airport.
Word of the threat not only made its way to Bessemer, but also caught the attention of federal authorities. "It sent a shockwave through Homeland Security,'' Hagler said.
It's not clear whether the teen told followers he was in Bessemer or if a location showed up on their devices, but either way those watching quickly called Bessemer police. More than 300 people had watched the video.
Hueytown police went to the teen's home, and discovered the arsenal of weapons shown on the video was actually comprised of airsoft guns and dummy grenades, Hagler said.
Homeland Security has since deleted the video, and the boy's account is no longer active. Hueytown police took him into custody, and he remains in juvenile detention. He is charged with making a terrorist threat.
Hagler said the boy didn't have access to real weapons, and it appears he was just playing around. "The video certainly must have appeared real enough,'' Hagler said. "You can't yell fire in a crowded building, and you can't get on social media brandishing weapons and threaten a terrorist attack. We live in a world where you have to take it seriously."
The chief said the teen's airsoft weapons looked alarmingly authentic, especially the AR-15. "If that kid had walked into a restaurant with that in the middle of the afternoon, I guarantee you one of my lawfully-armed citizens, if not one of my police officers, would have shot him,'' Hagler said.

"I think if he had actually had any intention of causing injury, he would have had actual real weapons, Hagler said. "But you never know in these situations. You can't assume - what if it's a practice run? What if he just wants to see how we're going to react?"
