OKALOOSA COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) - A Meigs Middle School student has been charged with issuing a written threat to kill or do bodily injury.
According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, a handwritten note outlining the threat was found in a boys’ bathroom at the school around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning and was turned over to the School Resource Officer to investigate.
Deputies say the note specifically mentioned an intention to kill a teacher at Meigs.
The SRO traced the note to an 11-year-old student who says he wrote it in late 2017, but it was “more of a joke”, the sheriff's office says.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has a zero-tolerance policy in regards to school threats and the student was turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice
