12-year-old accused of threatening students in Superior
A Superior Middle School student allegedly showed another student a list of classmates he intended to harm.
SUPERIOR — A 12-year-old boy was taken into custody Tuesday after allegedly showing to a classmate a list of other middle schoolers he intended to harm, according to a news release from the Superior Police Department.
Police have asked prosecutors to charge a Superior Middle School student with felony terroristic threats and misdemeanor disorderly conduct after school staff received a tip via the school district’s “Speak Up, Speak Out” app Tuesday morning. Middle school staff pulled the student from class, and a pair of Superior police detectives were dispatched there around 10 a.m.
They determined the student showed the list of classmates “in an attempt to scare the student he was showing the list to.” School district staff said the student who saw that list was the one who sent in the tip.
It wasn’t immediately clear how many students were on the list, but a police spokesperson said the number was fewer than 10.
