As a precaution, the Kentucky State Police and local law enforcement will provide extra security in the Anderson County school district throughout Monday, school officials said.
A Lawrenceburg man was arrested Thursday after police found evidence that a “threat was credible and imminent” to Shelby and Anderson County schools, according to Kentucky State Police.
State police and the FBI went to the Lawrenceburg residence of Dylan Jarrell, just a block away from Anderson County High School, when a New Jersey woman notified police she was getting unsolicited, harassing messages on Facebook from Jarrell, investigators said.
A search of Jarrell’s residence discovered “corroborating information that a threat was valid and imminent,” Jarrel’s arrest citation states. State police found “a firearm, over 200 rounds of ammunition, a Kevlar vest, a 100-round high capacity magazine, and a detailed plan of attack,” according to a news release from police. He also had “internet search history of how to conduct a school shooting was discovered,” Sgt. Joshua Lawson said.
Jarrell was still jailed in Shelby County Monday, according to jail records.
