Walnut Hill man accused of threatening to bomb Northview High School

Northwest Florida

A Walnut Hill man is accused of threatening to bomb Northview High School according to Escambia County Deputies.

The arrest report says 19-year-old Gavin Lee Barlow made a false report about planting a bomb and disrupted the school day.

Deputies say the resource officer at the school got a video that showed former student Barlow, saying profanities about the principal Gayle Weaver. The arrest report states that in the video, Barlow said he was going to set a bomb off in the school. 

The arrest report says the resource officer received the video from Barlow’s cousin, a junior at the school, via Snapchat.

When Weaver found out about the video, she ended school 9 minutes early. Barlow faces one count of false reporting of planting a bomb and disruption of a school function charges.
