Two Douglas County students were arrested Thursday for making threats in attempt to shut down their school on the April 20 anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.
Both students are accused of false reporting to authorities, a class 3 misdemeanor. One of the students was charged with interference with staff, faculty or students at an educational institution, which is a class 1 misdemeanor, and with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, which is a class 4 felony, the Douglas County Sheriff’s department said in a news release.
The sheriff’s department and Douglas County School District investigated many threats to a few schools in the district this week. All of the threats were investigated and found to be not-credible.
