A 17-year old Christian County High School student has been arrested for allegedly making a threat on social media and to other students.
The juvenile posted Monday morning that students “shouldn’t come to school tomorrow” and made similar statements to several students, according to a news release from the Christian County Sheriff’s Department.
Detective Michelle Kent, who is the school resource officer, arrested the 17-year old Monday and charged him with second-degree terroristic threatening.
Captain Chris Miller says, “The Christian County Sheriff’s Office and the Christian County Board of Education believe that the threat has been neutralized and are cooperating with each other to ensure the safety of our students.”
The Christian County Public School System issued a statement on Facebook saying that the school, as well as law enforcement has provided extra securities at the school as a safety precaution.
They say safety of students is their top priority.
