SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said a 14-year-old male student made death threats at East Valley High School last Thursday.
On Friday morning, deputies were advised of a threat call at East Valley High School. School officials said the previous day, the teenager told one of his teachers that he would like to kill every person in the classroom, including his teacher. He reportedly told his teacher it was nothing personal with her. According to authorities, the student said he had a plan in place to carry out his threats.
East Valley school officials made the decision to expel the student. Before Deputies were able to contact him, his mother reported him as a runaway.
Due to the severity of the threats, a report was distributed to patrol which outlined the incident and provided the information necessary to take the 14-year-old male into custody.
On Saturday morning, deputies were contacted by the suspect's mother. She told authorities her son had returned home and was asleep in his bedroom. Deputies took the boy into custody without incident and booked him into juvenile detention for the felony charge of Harassment Threat To Kill.
