Student taken from bus after texting about gun
Sheriff’s deputies Thursday morning stopped a school bus and took into custody a seventh-grade girl who allegedly texted a friend “that she was bringing her father’s gun to school.”
The sheriff’s office learned of the threat at 6:46 a.m. and stopped the bus in the Lake Whippoorwill subdivision just northeast of Warrenton 15 minutes later, Sgt. James Hartman said.
“Deputies boarded the bus and removed the student,” Sgt. Hartman said. “No weapon was found on the bus or in the student’s possession.
“This incident is under investigation and charges are pending.”
The WMS resource officer "filed juvenile petitions for communicating threats to do harm on school property,” the sergeant said.
The student attends Warrenton Middle School, he said.
Sheriff’s deputies and school officials “acted quickly to mitigate this potential threat and ensure the school community was safe,” Sgt. Hartman said.
