Student accused of having gun arrested at Pearland High School, police say

South Bay student arrested for alleged school shooting threat

A Spencer High School student was arrested Wednesday after posting threats to the school on a social media platform.

Police said the student did not pose a threat to the school. Further investigation revealed the student had threatened to kill three students from the school district.

No one carried out the threat and nobody was injured, he said.

Administrators and law enforcement urge students not to make comments that could be construed as violent or threatening. "Our school is committed to the safety and education of all our students".

The image showed a gun with the words, "Don't come to school tomorrow".

"We take every threat and every tip very seriously", she said.

Police said they have investigated multiple threats since the school shooting in Florida, but none of them have been deemed credible. The parents of the recipient of the message called police after their child told them about it.

The cases are being investigated as felony terrorist threats. Hewitt says the district does not believes there is any current threat to students or staff.

Thank you for your attention to this and for your ongoing partnership.
