YAZOO COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Police say a Yazoo County High School student claimed to be involved with ISIS in a Facebook post. 
 
A Yazoo County Sheriff's Department investigator says the 15-year-old made a threat to a longtime friend and claimed to have ties to the terrorist group.

The investigator says the student felt alienated from his friend and threatened on both Facebook and Twitter to kill the friend and himself. 

The FBI is investigating the case and, so far, has found nothing to indicate the student is affiliated with ISIS.

A judge has ordered a mental evaluation for the boy.
