A seventh-grade student at a Kansas middle school has been suspended after allegedly making a threat about a shooting, police said.
Officers were called at around 1:30 p.m. on Monday to Kenneth Henderson Middle School for a report of a student making a threat toward students and staff, the Garden City Police Department said in a news release. Sgt. Lana Urteaga said several students reported to administrators that another student had made a comment about “shooting up the school.”
The 13-year-old seventh-grader at the middle school admitted to making the comment and was suspended, Urteaga said. Police are requesting that the Finney County Attorney’s Office charge the child with criminal threat.
