14-year-old Arrested for Menacing

A Madisonville-area junior high student has been charged with Menacing after he wrote a “kill list” and showed it to other students before telling them he planned to bring a knife to school on Monday. 

The other students did the right thing and informed a teacher. The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s SRO working at the school was then contacted.

The 14-year-old boy was issued a summons for Menacing and was released on a custodial agreement to appear in court.

“We have made it very clear that comments 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, and we encourage students to tell a teacher, an administrator, their SRO or another trusted adult if they hear of such comments being made.”
