Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division Investigates Possible School Threats Sept. 17, 2018.

by on September 17, 2018


Parker County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division is investigating suspected school threats posted on social media over the weekend.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said the suspected threats were reported by several Brock Independent School District students and parents Saturday after they observed several Snap Chat posts on a known juvenile male student’s account. Sheriff’s investigators stated they believe certain posts were screen shots of previous posts made last school year from an account, which were re-posted over the weekend, along with new posts.

The older posts referenced emojis and references to a gun, a skull, a ‘dead face’, an ‘angry face,’ and an hour glass, stating “time is running out,” while using foul language.

Students and parents have expressed their concerns, and we want to assure them we are taking this investigation seriously and that the safety of each student and school staff is our first and foremost priority.

“Threats of violence are not a joke, they are not a prank,” said Sheriff Larry fowler. “Anyone making terroristic threats will be arrested and will face charges of making a terroristic threat with intent to interrupt a public place.”

This case was staffed with the Parker County District Attorney’s Office which determined that no criminal offense was found to have occurred. The Sheriff’s Office will continue to monitor this investigation and will take action as deemed appropriate with any new developments.

No further information regarding this case is available at this time due to the ongoing investigation and age of the juvenile suspect.
