A Lincoln Academy student has been charged with a misdemeanor after he allegedly made threatening comments to other students during school Thursday, Feb. 15, according to a press release from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
The student, whose name has not been released, was issued a summons for class D terrorizing.
Lincoln Academy faculty learned of the incident Friday, Feb. 16 and notified Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy and LA School Resource Officer Chad Gilbert, according to the press release. LCSO Lt. Brendan Kane assisted Gilbert in the investigation.
Several interviews were conducted and investigators met that evening with the boy and his mother, according to the press release. The boy was issued a juvenile summons charging him with terrorizing. He remains in the custody of his parents.
With all interviews completed, it is the belief of the investigators that the student was unlikely to act on his alleged threat, according to the press release.
“While there appears to be no further cause for concern in this matter, it is the policy of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office to investigate all complaints of this nature and pursue all suspects without delay,” Lt. Michael Murphy said in the press release.
