Police investigating social media threat against Stonewall Jackson High

Brunswick police arrest high school student after online threat

The student, whose identity was not released, brought the homemade explosive to Pine View High School in St. George inside of his backpack on Monday.

According to Chico Police, a Chico High student spread threats that he was prepared to shoot up his school on February 23.

It was similar to the threat a 15-year-old student made Monday night about Larkin High School in Elgin.

Officers found that the male "had been researching information and expressing interest in ISIS and promoting the organization", the department said. "And the objective of that device was to cause severe injury, potentially death, and damage", said Lona Trombley, Public Information Officer with St. George Police.

Police said in a search of the boy's house, they found evidence linking him to the flag incident.

The teen who was arrested was attending class at the school, St. George police said. The juvenile said the threat was made without true thought or intention, police said.

The student also received a criminal summons from the Colorado Springs Police Department.

According to Modesto Bee archives, there have been at least three investigations into school threats in Stanislaus County within the last month.

During a news conference at the school Monday, Steve Dunham, spokesman for the Washington County School District, credited the quick response from students and school resource officers in preventing anyone from being injured in the incident. "Our student was not involved and I understand the police are confident that their tech people will soon know who sent the email". "Student and employee well-being is our first priority as we continue to provide a safe learning environment", school officials said. The 16-year-old was taken into custody by Warren County Juvenile Probation and placed accordingly awaiting a hearing, according to the police report.

Police on Tuesday credited students with helping prevent casualties after the bomb was discovered.
