Student arrested for making threats to carry out school shooting


Los Lunas Police say they are still investigating the threat made to Los Lunas High School and are asking anyone with information to contact them.

Kistler said the threat was verbal and the student body was never in any jeopardy.

"In light of the mass shooting at a Florida high school last week, I understand that tensions are running high", McCorkle wrote in a Wednesday letter to parents.

"The threat made was to 'shoot up OHS.' The Opelika Police Department and agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation were able to locate the suspect's residence", the statement said.

Nokia At MWC 2018: What We Expect
Its bigger brother, the Galaxy S9+, should have a 6.2-inch screen, 6GB of RAM and a dual, vertically oriented camera on the back. MWC is the traditional event for phone manufacturers to announce their new flagships, so that's where we're putting our money.

"The very positive part of this story is that the kids felt compelled enough to come talk to us about it". Superintendent Chuck Lane says the student was apparently upset over recently being moved from the high school to the annex due to disciplinary issues.

Police presence at the school was stepped up Thursday morning. His parents were not home at the time of the arrest but have since been notified. They were disappointed that students waited two weeks to report this incident.

"One thing that parents, I know that most parents have probably done this already, they really need to sit down and explain to their children how serious this is", he said.

The nature of the threat wasn't disclosed, although Olsen made an indirect reference to the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., in which 17 students and adults were killed. She told 11 News this is in response to how prevalent school threats are becoming.
