SAN ANTONIO – Two teenage boys were arrested after they threatened to harm a teacher at Briscoe Middle School, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
BCSO said deputies were dispatched to the school, located in the 4000 block off Lone Star Parkway in the Northside Independent School District, at around 10:30 a.m. Monday.
The boys, both 13, made the threats over text message and were arrested for terroristic threat, BCSO said.
Deputies also heard a second report about a student taking a weapon to the campus, but no weapon was found in either incident.
In a Facebook post, Briscoe Middle School Principal Christina Rather said that students and staff were safe.
She added that two physical altercations were addressed last week, and social media posts suggested that students were going to start a mosh pit in the hallways.
Campus staff will continue to monitor hallways and public spaces for students “engaging in this type of disruptive and dangerous behavior,” Rather said.
“We continue to investigate specific individuals alleged to have engaged in social media threats towards an individual. If found in violation of our Student Code of Conduct, the individuals will be subject to disciplinary action,” the post continued.
BCSO said they have taken over the investigation of the incidents at Briscoe. Anonymous tips about weapons, drugs and illegal activity at local schools can be submitted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
