Killeen ISD police arrested an Ellison High School student Friday afternoon for making a terroristic threat, according to a news release from KISD.
About 3 p.m., a 14-year-old freshman at Ellison student told other students that he had made a “hit list” and was going to come to the school Monday and inflict harm at the campus.
Killeen ISD police officers stationed on the campus full-time immediately arrested the student and charged him with making a terroristic threat. He has been removed from campus, according to the release.
"KISD Police and the school district will work to see that the student is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," the release reads. "No one was hurt in this incident."
Superintendent John Craft said in the release that student safety is the number one priority of the district.
"We will always arrest anyone who makes such a threat,” Craft said.
