Killeen teenager arrested for making terrorist threats to Ellison, Shoemaker and Killeen High Schools
Killeen ISD reports that a 14-year-old student was arrested last night after issuing threats against Ellison, Shoemaker and Killeen High Schools on social media. Noooooot a great way to start the new school year, ya think? .
Six hours after the threats were made on social media the 14 year old was arrested for making a terroristic threat.
KISD stressed on their facebook page that this is an expellable offense and that they take these threats very serious and is also investigating those who may have liked or shared the threatening comments.
Today at these schools there is enhanced police presence.
“We take any kind of threat like this very seriously. Parents, please help us to make sure students know that if they ever make a threat against the school, they will be charged with a felony and sent to jail or juvenile detention. The safety of everyone on campus is always our highest priority, and no threat such as this will ever be tolerated on any Killeen ISD campus,” said Superintendent John Craft according to the KISD Facebook page.
Parents please make sure you stress the consequences if your child makes a threat they (law enforcement) are not playing these days!
