An Atascocita Middle School student has been arrested and charged with Possession of a Prohibited Weapon after he brought a saw blade and "hit list" to school on Thursday.
Letter from AMS:
"Today (2/20/19), a student made a poor choice and brought a saw blade to school. The blade was about 8 inches and is the type of tool one uses to cut a tree branch. The student also had written a hit list containing a few students' names.
The moment that we received a tip about a potential safety concern, we took immediate action by launching an investigation. We involved Humble ISD Police, who gathered information and presented it to the Harris County District Attorney's Office. The Harris County District Attorney's Office filed a charge of possession of a prohibited weapon, a third-degree felony. The student was arrested and removed from campus.
All students are safe. Our school administration is having personal conversations with the parents of students whose names were listed.
We work in partnership with law enforcement for the safety and well-being of everyone. Please continue to encourage your children to report any concerns to our school staff, Humble ISD Police (281-641-7900) or through the Humble ISD iHelp app. Working in partnership keeps our schools safe and students focused on learning.
Hope this young kid gets help. And not to take away from the seriousness of it but a saw blade??? Did this poor guy imagine the people on his list would just stand perfectly still and let him attempt to saw? How far did he think he would get? Prayers for him and his family and the kids on the list. Strange times we are living in.
