CONEY ISLAND - Empty threats allegedly made on Facebook have gotten a 15-year-old at Lincoln High School in Coney Island in deep trouble with the NYPD.

Police say the unidentified teen wrote on his Facebook page "I might shoot up Lincoln."

Cops arrested the teen at home on Thursday for making the threats.

Officials say their counterterrorism investigators found no evidence that the 15-year-old had any bomb-making materials and that the school was never searched or evacuated last week.

The case is currently being turned over to family court.
