Two teen boys are facing charges after online threats targeting Lorette Collegiate.

Manitoba RCMP responded to the school on Thursday and arrested one of the teens outside.

An investigation into a separate threat earlier in the week led to the arrest of a second teen at his home.

Police say in both incidents, threats were shared on social media. Both teens are students at the school.

They are facing a charge of uttering threats and were released from custody. They will appear in court at a later date.

A number of police vehicles were at Lorette Collegiate on Friday as a precaution.
