Two Anderson County students are facing charges after allegedly writing threats on the bathroom walls of two separate schools, Kentucky State Police said.
State police received a call Tuesday about terroristic threatening after a message was found on the wall of Anderson County Middle School in Lawrenceburg that read, “I am going to shoot up the school on 2/21/2018.”
During the course of the investigation, state police detectives determined the threat was made by a 13-year-old girl.
She was charged with two counts of second-degree terroristic threatening and one count of third-degree criminal mischief. Terroristic threatening is a felony punishable by one to five years in prison. Criminal mischief is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail and fines up to $250.
The girl was lodged in the Fayette County Regional Juvenile Detention Center.
On Wednesday, the words “I am going to shoot up the school this week,” were found written on a bathroom wall at nearby Emma B. Ward Elementary School, according to state police.
An 11-year-old girl at the elementary school has been accused of making the threat and has been charged with second-degree terroristic threatening, according to state police.
The investigations into both threats are ongoing.
