Three juveniles are facing charges following separate threats made at two Slidell-area school Tuesday (February 27, 2018). All three faces expulsion hearings in addition to their charges
A 14-year-old male student at Clearwood Junior High School was arrested after he told a teacher he was going to bring a gun to school and shoot her, his classmates, and then “shoot up the school.” He was taken to Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center and booked with Terrorizing.
A 12-year-old male student at the same school was issued a summons for simple assault and released into the custody of a family member after that student was overheard in the hallway saying he was going to bring a gun to school and shoot another student.
A 15-year-old female student at Boyet Junior High was also arrested for Terrorizing after she posted a video on SnapChat, stating there would be a murder, homicide and suicide at the school and threatened to kill people. She was booked into Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center.
Both St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Smith and St. Tammany Parish Public School Superintendent Trey Folse emphasize the importance of parents talking to their children about the consequences of making threats, even in a joking manner.
