On 1 May 13 Deputy Sheriff Hunter investigated
a report of a juvenile who threatened to bring a gun to school
the following day. The suspect, a thirteen year old Marietta
resident, was playing a video game on a school bus and uttered
curse words when he became frustrated with his game. Another
student admonished him for his language, at which point the
suspect yelled at her in return. The other student then threw
the suspect’s backpack to another student, further angering
the suspect. At that point, the suspect stated he would bring
his dad’s gun to school and shoot several students. Questioned
about his comments, the juvenile admitted being frustrated with
the other students and stated he did mention bringing a gun
to school and shooting students on the bus. The suspect said
he knew he should not have made the comment and stated he had
no intention of carrying out the threat. In addition to a ten
day suspension and possible expulsion, the student faces possible
charges in Juvenile Court. Any charges filed will be at the
discretion of the Prosecutor’s Office.
