Another student has been arrested for making a threat to bring a gun to school. This time it was a 10 year-old Lee Road-area girl who was arrested October 6, 2022 by the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office on a misdemeanor menacing charge after telling classmates she was going to bring a gun to school and shoot another classmate.
Deputies with the STPSO became aware of the incident after a parent of one of the classmates contacted school administrators. The 10 year-old was issued a summons and released to a parent on a custodial agreement to appear in court, after it was determined she did not have access to any firearms.
“We have made it very clear that threats like this will be taken seriously,” St. Tammany Parish Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We will continue to work with our schools and investigate any and all threats made at our schools or to the students and faculty who attend them.”
