Administrators: threat to 'shoot up' Bentonville H.S. this morning leads to student

Posted By on Mon, Mar 31, 2014 at 2:51 PM

Administrators at Bentonville High School have located and sent home a student who they say admitted to writing a threat to 'shoot the place up' during classes on Tuesday, KFSM reports 

The threat was found this morning written on the wall of a girl's bathroom at the school.  A spokesperson for the district said that a school resource officer identified a student as a suspect, and that student later confessed to writing the threat. The student's parents came and picked up the student, whose gender and age have not been specified. A police investigation into the incident is ongoing.
