Jackson County Sheriff’s investigators have arrested two more St. Martin Middle School students for allegedly threatening to “shoot up” the school. Sheriff Mike Ezell says the charges against the 13-year old boys are in connection with the threats made Tuesday, October 8. The latest arrests occurred Thursday (October 10), morning at the school.
Today’s arrests bring to five the number of juveniles charged this week with making terrorist threats against the middle school. Under state law, they are considered felony offenses.
Sheriff Ezell says as long as the threats of violence against schools continue, arrests will be made.
