Monday, Bulloch County Sheriff’s School Resource Officer Ross Newman arrested a 12-year-old sixth grade Southeast Bulloch Middle School student for making a threat against the school.
The child stated intent to “shoot up the school,” said Bulloch County Sheriff Noel Brown.
Reports listed no weapons and stated the threat was only verbal.
The student was taken to the Bulloch County Jail, booked on charges of terroristic threats and disrupting a public school, then turned over to parental custody, he said.
The case will be turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice and Ogeechee Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office, he said.
This arrest makes the sixth time this year a student in area schools has made similar threats; five in Bulloch County (one at Georgia Southern University) and one in Candler County.
