Broward County Florida News Palm Beach County


BROWARD COUNTY, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A 12-year-old student in Pompano Beach, just south of Boca Raton, is facing serious charges after allegedly threatening to kill people in Crystal Lake Middle School.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office just issued this advisory:

Broward Sheriff’s Office Threat Management Unit detectives arrested a 12-year-old Crystal Lake Middle School student on Tuesday on charges of making written threats to kill. 

Earlier that morning, a student at the school learned of the threat and posted the information on social media as a warning to others about a possible school shooting. A BSO school resource deputy immediately began investigating and identified the individual responsible for making the threat. 

The threat outlined a detailed plan to “infiltrate the school from all entrances” and “start little by little killing people.” Detectives arrested the 12-year-old and transported him to the Juvenile Assessment Center for processing. No weapons were recovered at the school, and the investigation into the incident is ongoing. 

BSO reminds the community that these types of threats are taken seriously, investigated fully and could result in criminal charges.

Broward Sheriff’s Office reminds students and parents that anyone who is aware of a school threat should contact local law enforcement — regardless of County — immediately.
