13-Year-Old Arrested for Sending Email Threat to His School
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Specialized Investigations Division detectives Wednesday night arrested a 13-year-old student from Dupont Hadley Middle School for sending an anonymous email to the school’s principal on February 25th threatening to “shoot up the school.”
Detectives were ultimately able to trace the email account to one registered to the student’s mother. During an interview with police Wednesday night, the student admitted to sending the email, saying that he did it on a dare from online gaming friends.
The 13-year-old was booked at Juvenile Court on a charge of making a false report of an emergency, a felony.
