A 12-year-old student faces charges related to terroristic threats following a text message exchange in which the student threatened to “shoot up the school.”

What Happened?

On Sunday night, a parent contacted the Midlothian Police Department to report that their child had received concerning text messages from an unidentified number.

Several students at Walnut Grove Middle School received these texts as part of a group conversation, according to MPD.

The text’s source number was identified as a burner app that forges phone numbers. As a precaution, police were dispatched to the Walnut Grove campus on Monday morning.

MPD was able to identify the 12-year-old student at the school as the source of the communications through their investigation. We won’t be releasing his name because he is a minor. He’s being housed at the Waxahachie Eilis County Juvenile Detention Center.

The MPD claims they do not think the threats were legitimate and that there is no proof the threat made to the school was credible, but the investigation is still ongoing. The crime of terrorism threat is in the third degree.
