Bossier Teen Arrested For Threatening School
In this day and age, threats of violence are always taken seriously, even if the threat was not intended to be carried out. A Bossier teen found that out Thursday when they were arrested for making threats against their school. It started when the 14 year old student was in gym class at Green Acres Middle School and made verbal threats in reference to committing a school shooting.
Investigators with the Bossier City Police Department Juvenile Unit and the Bossier Sheriff Parish Department, School Resource Officers, were made aware of the threats later that night after school was over. Students that were in the gym class with the suspect were discussing it on social media after school, and a parent of one of the students was made aware of the incident and notified authorities.
The suspect was booked into the Ware Juvenile Detention Center Thursday night on a charge of Terrorizing. The suspect did not have the means to carry out the threat, and at this time BCPD believe the threat against the school was not viable.
