Colorado Springs Police say a student made a verbal threat of violence towards Mitchell High School Tuesday.
"We appreciate those in the community who are reporting these threats", Elgin Police Chief Jeff Swoboda said in a news release.
"They not only create real fear and anxiety for our students, staff and families, but also distract from teaching and learning", spokesman Derek Turner wrote in an email.
"I was scared", Case said.
According to the news release, the Hurricane City Police Department plans to file charges for the suspect's reported involvement in the ISIS-related vandalism on February 15. McRorie said the department is continuing to investigate. An unnamed student was arrested and charged with creating a weapon of mass destruction. "These threats can result in arrest and prosecution".More news: Amazon Prime Expands Discount Program to Include Medicaid Recipients
The Washington County School District posted on its website that all of the school's students had been accounted for and were safe.
A teen who was arrested Monday, for replacing the national flag with an Islamic State (ISIS)-like flag and spraying a threatening message on the wall of Hurricane High School, Utah, last month, also left a homemade bomb at the Pine View High School in the same state. Sergeant Bill Bradshaw added, "The safety of our schools is our highest priority". "We've had additional officers throughout all of our schools".
Officers responded after Trevor Joseph Marshall allegedly made threats toward a student at Adelante High School. The threat was said to be against bullies at the school and security at the school was ramped up.
The school was evacuated for two hours as law enforcement agents investigated the scene. Suttmeier said it is school policy to "shelter-in-place" during a possible bomb threat.
No damage was reported and the school reopened Tuesday morning for classes.
