A 10-year-old Franklin boy is the youngest and latest of nine school threat cases filed in Warren County since the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla.
The boy, a fifth-grader at Schenck Elementary school in Franklin, is scheduled for arraignment at 1 p.m. in Warren County Juvenile Court.
He is accused of making statements on March 5 to three students “that he was going to bring a gun to school, kill everyone and then kill himself,” according to the case filed on Monday in the court in Lebanon.
The school principal investigated the case before contacting the police, according to the charge.
On March 7, the boy “described being bullied at school, and was having problems dealing with the bullying” during a meeting with the principal, his parents and Detective David Hatfield, the detective said in the charging documents.
The boy is charged with inducing panic.
On Monday, Judge Joe Kirby released a 17-year-old girl after 21 days of detention, the fifth case in which he released the child to their parents after a polygraph test.
