BOERNE, Texas -

A student at Boerne Middle School North has been arrested after allegedly threatening to shoot other students at the school.

David Stelmazewski, superintendent of schools for the Boerne Independent School District, announced the arrest in a joint news conference with Boerne police Thursday morning.

Stelmazewski read from a statement, in which said that “the threats were immediately addressed with the full force of the District and Boerne Police Department resources.”

“There is no risk today to students or staff,” the statement said.

Information released by Boerne police gave a few more details about the incident itself.

According to police, school administrators were notified of the threats by other students Wednesday.

The middle schoolers reportedly told school officials that the 13-year-old seventh-grade student threatened to shoot several classmates on Thursday morning.

Police said they “found the information credible” and served a warrant at the male student’s home, where they found several firearms and ammunition.

The student was arrested Wednesday evening, police said.

A written report did not state what charges he will face.

Investigators said they believe the student was acting alone in making the threats.

Although Boerne ISD said the campus is safe, police said they will have increased security at the school for the rest of the week.
