A 14-year-old student has been arrested and accused of falsely reporting an active shooter at Pine Bush High School Wednesday. 
State police say the teen used another student’s cellphone to call 911 around 12:30 p.m. and lied saying there was a potentially deadly emergency in the building.
The incident prompted a massive law enforcement response and created widespread fear among students, staff and parents during a lockdown at the high school, Crispbell Middle School and other district buildings. 
Police say the teen was turned over to his parents and the case will be handled in family court.
