Police said the 14-year-old student, whose identity was not released due to age, made a verbal threat in class to "shoot up the school" on Tuesday. No specific students were named in the threats. They did not name the student, who was arrested and has been charged as an adult with felony intimidation, the statement said.
We continue to ask for your help to ensure that our students fully understand the importance of keeping our campuses weapon-free.
Around the state, the Cambridge-Isanti school district cancelled school and evening activities after they received a threat early this morning.Authorities are investigating a threat at St. James High School.
Another student at a different high school was arrested for possessing a gun on school property. Students who wanted to demonstrate were permitted to march around the football field and walk to the front of the school. The walkout is part of a greater movement spurred by student survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting asking for stricter gun laws. Hours after launching an investigation, police identified the individual believed to have made the threat.
Johnson said the investigation is ongoing, but at this point it does not appear any other students were involved in the incident. Jaeger said while teachers had been trained, most didn't tell their students about what they learned. Allen was booked in the Livingston Parish Detention Center with a $25,000 bond.
After seeing what steps are being taken some parents say they are finally able to breathe a sigh of relief. "And I'm frankly sorry that it was so hard on you and so hard on us and so hard on our students".
