More students charged with making threats



Reports of threats between students in a number of schools are continuing to plague educators and police alike, according to Lt. Tom Alexander of the Hagerstown City Police.

- A 12-year-old at E. Russell Hicks was charged with threatening to kill another student on March 16.

- A 13-year-old Northern Middle student allegedly wrote a note on March 14 threatening another student. Police investigating that incident confiscated a baseball bat at the school.

- A 13-year-old Northern Middle student threatened to stab a classmate on March 15. No knife was found.

- On Monday, another incident at Northern Middle involving threats against students was being investigated by police.

In each of the cases in which students were identified, they were charged with making threats on school property and referred to the Department of Juvenile Justice, Alexander said.

When students are charged for such incidents on school property, they are suspended until a meeting can be set up between parents and school officials, according to School Board policy.
