Report: 14-year-old arrested after threatening to shoot classmate

Posted: Updated:

A 14-year-old student was charged with assault and battery in York County last week after investigators found a journal where he threatened to kill another student.

The incident, which happened on January 27, was reported the same day at Clover Middle School, according to the report from the York County Sheriff's Office.

The principal notified the Sheriff's Office after a student reported to a teacher that the juvenile was writing threatening messages in their classroom.

Sheriff's deputies said they found a journal that the juvenile had been keeping where he writes about shooting another student with a shotgun because of who that student chose to sit with at lunch, and because of the material possessions the student's family own.

The juvenile was arrested and charged with first degree assault and battery and was taken to the Moss Justice Center where he was released into the custody of his parents.
