St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were alerted after school administrators were notified, after school hours, that a student was seen earlier in the day with a weapon on the school campus.
The 15 year-old student was subsequently arrested for L.R.S. 14:40.1 relative to Terrorizing and transported to Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center.
The investigation remains ongoing and no additional information is available at this time.
“We have made it very clear that threats like this will be taken seriously,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We will continue to work with our schools and investigate any and all threats at our schools or to the students and faculty who attend them.”
