Taconic High School students in Pittsfield walk out to protest gun violence

A former Coweta County student is in custody in Savannah after making terroristic threats toward Coweta schools.

The 15-year-old boy allegedly made threats of gun-related violence directed at the school during a verbal disturbance in gym class, according to a police report.

"The students in Florida have inspired so many other high schoolers to take a stand in our communities", Hetzel said in a February 25 email.

School resource officers and school officials were able to identify a 14-year-old student as a suspect in these threats. After interviewing them, deputies say the threats were credible, and he did not have any weapons on him.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and support as we work together for the safety and security of our students, staff, and community.

Officials did not release the name or age of the student.

Students may face consequences for participating in walkouts during the school day, because students are required by law to attend school.

Middle Schools - activities are being planned by students, who are consulting with administration to ensure that the plans protect student safety. "Threats of any kind against students and/or faculty will not be tolerated". Sharma said everyone plays a part in stopping gun violence, from schools to legislators to students. Together, we can keep our students safe so they can focus on learning.

Several parents said they did not receive the message the school sent out about the incident.

The student also reportedly told police officers they got the idea from watching school shooting pranks on YouTube. The threat involved a photo posted on social media of a "painted airsoft gun". Little said he believed the student but there is a zero tolerance policy for bringing firearms on campus.

No warrant was issued for the search, as parents were cooperative with the police investigation and allowed the search, according to Kunz. "We also ask that people verify information before linking the information to our schools". A male student was questioned off-campus by San Diego County Sheriff's deputies, she said. However, parents feel the district is not communicating with them well enough. "We have video surveillance and the ability to remotely access cameras in crisis situations".
