Middle school student arrested for threats in Zillah

Middle school student arrested for threats in Zillah

The male student was arrested Wednesday after making the threat, allegedly after getting into an argument in gym class with at least one other student, police said.

And hundreds of students did just that at both schools, leaving the classroom on Tuesday to make their voices heard about the recent violence.

Extra officers arrived on scene at La Pine High School this morning as a precaution, following the alleged threat.

There were no indications either teen had any plans or any weapons to carry out the threats, the chief said.

An announcement was made at the school around 7:40 a.m., ordering students to shelter in place after one student told police that another student showed them a gun. In the interest of student and staff safety, the Omaha Police Department was immediately contacted. The student was detained and searched and an airsoft gun was found. This is a national, student-powered initiative, meant to spark action to keep our schools and our communities safe from gun violence.

Students at Lincoln-Way Central and Lincoln-Way East High Schools will be walking out of school for 17 minutes on March 14 to protest mass shootings at schools nationwide.

UW is not the only university to reach out to prospective students and reassure them of their rights to lawfully protest, as Cornell University has also acknowledged protest participation concerns via Twitter.

Witnesses said that while on the bus she said multiple times that she would "shoot up the school" in a profanity-laden tirade.

Some students at Oswego High School already walked out of school last month.

The student accused of the alleged threats was brought into the school office and staff notified the Fresno County Sheriff's Office, the release said.
