BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- 11-18 1:40PM --

A Lynn University student has been arrested after allegedly posting threats on Facebook indicating he was going to recreate a "Columbine High School incident."

The South Florida university contacted Boca Raton police on
Sunday, stating that a student was missing after posting threats on
the social networking website.

The student, 20-year-old Daniel Shana, was found on campus
before officers arrived. He later told investigators he did not
intend to hurt anyone and was just tired of being picked on.

Shana was taken to a mental health facility for evaluation.

Police say Shana also posted threats on Facebook against his
ex-girlfriend and her current boyfriend.

A message left at a phone listing for Shana's family in Rhode
Island was not immediately returned.
