Killeen ISD student arrested for terroristic threat

News

Killeen ISD Police arrested an Ellison High School student this afternoon for making a terroristic threat.

A 14-year-old freshman at Ellison told other students on Friday afternoon that he made a “hit list” and was going to come to the school on Monday and inflict harm at the campus.

Killeen ISD Police officers stationed on the campus full-time immediately arrested the student and charged him with making a terroristic threat. He has been removed from campus.

“A student told other students at the school that he had made a hit list and that he was going to come to the school on Monday and cause harm there at the school,” KISD Chief of Communications Terry Abbott said.

This is the second time a threat was made at a KISD campus in the last month.

“Students need to hear this loudly and clearly. If you make a threat against the school, we are going to arrest you and prosecute you and put you in jail,” Abbott said. “It is a serious crime. Don’t do it.”

The district says the hit list had names of students that attend the high school and while they could not give more details about what exactly the student intended to do. He was removed from campus and will be spending time in juvenile detention.

KISD Police and the school district will work to see that the student is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. No one was hurt in this incident.

“Student safety is our number one priority every day and we will always arrest anyone who makes such a threat,” says Killeen ISD Superintendent John Craft.
