Student Arrested For Threatening To Shoot Up Texas High School


An alleged plot to shoot up a North Texas high school was thwarted late Tuesday night with one teenager (not pictured) subsequently taken into custody, charged with exhibition of a firearm.














There are still plans to increase security at North Forney High School on Wednesday, after the 15-year-old was taken into custody.

CBSDFW reports:

The threat was made on Tuesday about a shooting that would take place the following day. A parent called officials after their child overheard another student’s conversation discussing the alleged plan.

The Forney Independent School District posted details on Facebook, saying that the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office finished their an investigation at 11:00 p.m. on Tuesday night and took one person into custody. According to a report, the suspect is a 15-year-old student at the high school. He will be charged with exhibition of a firearm.

Authorities insist that there is no longer a threat to the school district.

Some parents on Facebook said that they plan to keep their kids at home on Wednesday even though police officers will be monitoring the campus as a precaution.

Classes will continue as scheduled at the Forney high school.

The plan was to shoot up the school today but authorities believe there is no longer a threat.
