Central Valley High student arrested after admitting to writing shooting threat to avoid giving class presentations

From staff reports

A 16-year-old Central Valley High School student was arrested Friday after admitting to writing a school shooting threat in a bathroom in order to avoid giving two presentations in class.

School staff and the school resource Deputy David Lawhorn quickly identified a possible suspect when the message was discovered as school was beginning Friday, according to a news release. No weapons or evidence showing he intended to harm anyone was located during the investigation.

The student is facing a felony threat to bomb or injure charge, according to a news release. He was booked into the Spokane County Juvenile Detention Center.

The sheriff’s office called the the threat the latest in “an increasingly far too common and disturbing occurrence in our community” and asked parents “to talk to your school-age children and explain the seriousness of making threats like this.”
