On Friday, social media threats were made aimed towards students at two EVSC schools, but thankfully, that individual was arrested over the weekend.
The individual made threatening social media posts where they said they would be shooting people at Harrison High School and Bosse High School. This individual also used racial slurs in the many posts that they made, but after a weekend of hard work between EVSC Police, Evansville Police officers and detectives, and the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force, the juvenile was apprehended.
“It was vitally important that this individual be found, located, and interviewed so that a confession could hopefully resolve, which it did, so we’re very pleased with all of the efforts," said Jason Wobkenberg. "Whether it’s the students who were making the reports, administrators, EPD, FBI, there were so many individuals that were working together.”
The juvenile's suspect was arrested for three counts of Level 5 intimidation charges for their posts on social media. EVSC says the individual fully confessed to all the posts that were made in an interview with authorities
And those shooting threats were made for this Wednesday, so officials were extremely happy to have this situation resolved over the weekend.
