When: August 2019
Where: Floyd Dryden Middle School, Juneau, Alaska
What: Two 13-year-old boys were arrested and charged with felony terroristic threatening for planning to take a gun to school and shoot people.
A classmate heard the two students discussing their intent to carry out a school shooting and told his parents. His parents contacted police, who then alerted the school.
“We really want students to know there are significant consequences now to making threats like this,” said Juneau School District Superintendent Bridget Weiss. “Words and pictures matter. They do indicate threat.”
