A Pisgah High School student was arrested Wednesday after allegedly threatening to shoot people.

Chief Deputy Rocky Harnen, of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, said Joseph Berg, 18 of Pisgah, was charged with making a terrorist threat.

“Our school resource officer got information [Berg] was making threats,” said Harnen. “He checked on it and contacted an investigator.”

Harnen said no weapon was found at the school.

“He was just talking about it,” said Harnen. “We have a zero tolerance policy. We are not going to put up with it in Jackson County.”

Berg was placed in the Jackson County Jail, where he remained Thursday morning with no bond set.
