Two teens are now facing criminal charges for making threats to harm a number of people at their school.
On Thursday, a 15-year-old male allegedly sent a threatening text message to an individual who quickly reported it to police. The following evening, a 16-year-old male allegedly posted a threat on an Internet chat room.
The Edmonton Sun has learned the threats involved shooting people at school. Police laid charges against the teens on Monday.
One of the teens attends St. Joseph Composite High School, while the other teen is a student at Archbishop Oscar Romero.
Lori Nagy, spokeswoman for Edmonton Catholic Schools, said the threat posted online was brought to the school’s attention. The boy posted he was from Edmonton, attended a catholic school and was planning to cause harm.
