9 students accused of recent threats in Williamson schools
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nine students have been taken into police custody within the last month after being accused of making threats against Williamson County schools — the latest being a middle school student accused of posting a "kill list" on a school bathroom wall.
Officials say they don't remember a time when so many threats have been made involving schools in this wealthy suburban county.
Sharon Puckett, spokeswoman for the Williamson County Sheriff's Office, said the kids have posted two kill lists, made various threats of bombs, shootings and other violence. One of the nine students is from Nashville and is charged with terrorism after being accused of making threats against schools in multiple states.
Officials say a Heritage Middle School student was charged Wednesday with disorderly conduct and vandalism after he confessed to posting the kill list on the bathroom wall.
