Police Respond to Alleged School Threat Downstate

Share this post

Police in Bloomington, Indiana, responded to Bloomington South High School Monday, where a male student allegedly told another student of his plans to “break the record”, making references to the twenty-six people killed in the Connecticut elementary school massacre. Police say the subject indicated he had a gun in his locker and told the other student the shooting was supposed to take place this Friday. Police say no weapon was found after a search of the student's two lockers and backpack. Authorities say it was determined the student had access to various weapons at his parents' home, but ammunition was supposedly secured in a safe. On Tuesday, detectives consulted with the Monroe County Prosecutor's Office who assisted in obtaining a search warrant for the weapons at the student's home. A news release from the Bloomington Police Department says the search warrant was obtained under the guidelines of the Jake Laird Law that allows law enforcement to remove weapons from those who could pose a threat. The search warrant was presented to the homeowners and police say two rifles, two shotguns and two handguns along with ammunition were removed.  Police say the actual intentions remain unknown and the case remains under investigation.
