UPDATE: 16-Year-Old Shadle Park Student Arrested For Threatening To Kill Students

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

Court documents released Monday are shedding more light on a threat made by a Shadle Park High School student over the weekend in which the lives of two students were threatened.

Records show the 16-year-old suspect, who KHQ will not name because she is a minor, yelled at a fellow student because she thought rumors were being spread about her. A second student at Barker High School in Spokane Valley reported the same 16-year-old girl threatened to come to Barker and “pistol whip” her, also saying “she would find [the victim] and kill her” adding that “all she needs is her gun and her girls.”

Records show the suspect also took to Facebook, writing, “You’re ALL DEAD. On sight [profanity], talk [profanity] get HIT. But you kept running your mouth so you’re a dead girl now. So dead. I’ll see you at your school Monday [profanity].”

A student reported the threats to a school resource officer over the weekend and the girl was arrested by Spokane County Deputies Sunday on two counts of felony harassment threats to kill.

A Spokane Public Schools representative told KHQ’s Kelsey Watts staff at Shadle Park were notified about the incident, and the student who was threatened was in attendance Monday. However, the district had no plans to notify the student body or parents.

A Central Valley School District representative told KHQ’s Kelsey Watts the Barker student who was threatened was at school Monday, and notified all the staff and students at Barker High School about the threats and arrest Monday, and is sending this letter home with students:

February 10, 2014

Dear Barker High School Families:

Early Sunday morning, a Barker High School student was threatened through Facebook. Our student reported the threat to a teacher who alerted school district security officials. The Spokane County Sheriff’s Department investigated and arrested a 16-year-old Shadle Park High student yesterday afternoon. The student who was arrested made a specific threat involving our school and students.

As a staff we met early this morning to provide accurate updates regarding the incident and to prepare for students. Sheriff Deputy Jeff Duncan and School Resource Officer Trevor Jones were here to greet students and help calm any worries. We held a student meeting to provide students with accurate information and discussed the positive actions taken by our student who reported the threat.

Please know that the safety and security of our students is our top priority. We work hard on behalf of students to create and maintain a safe and nurturing learning environment. We are proud of our students and especially proud of the courageous student who reported the threat. Our Central Valley School District security team responded promptly to ensure the safety of our Barker students.

As a parent, you are encouraged to reinforce the importance of safety online by routinely monitoring your student’s Facebook postings. As a school, we will continue to monitor the situation and utilize our established safety procedures which include regular safety meetings, visitor check-in, resource officer visibility, staff name badges and emergency drill practices.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Warm regards,

Kerri Ames, Principal Barker High School

Principal Eric Sylling from Shadle Park High School also sent home a notice to families:

Dear Shadle Park High School Families,

As you may have seen on the news today a Shadle Park student was arrested over the weekend for making threats on Facebook toward another student in a nearby

school district and a student at Shadle Park High School. I wanted to share with you that we are working with local law enforcement to investigating the

threat. It is our top priority that students who attend Shadle Park High School and Spokane Public Schools are safe and secure.

We truly appreciate the seriousness with which the Spokane County Sheriff*s department took the threat and the support of our district in making sure our

schools are safe.

As a parent myself, I would encourage all parents to be actively engaged in monitoring and discussing your child*s online posting and activities.

Sincerely,

Eric Sylling,

Principal, Shadle Park High School
