Students, 7 And 10, Accused Of Making Threats At Warren School

WARREN, Pa. — Two students, a 7- and 10-year-old, are accused of making threats at Warren Area Elementary School, Pennsylvania State Police said.

The threats were reportedly made Tuesday at the elementary school. Troopers first responded around 9:30 a.m. after a 10-year-old student reportedly wrote “Kill all teachers” along with hand-drawn sketches. State police said the “threat was assessed and thoroughly investigated.”

The student was removed from the school and a juvenile petition for making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct was prepared. The petition will be referred to the Warren County Juvenile Probation Office, and a hearing will be scheduled at a later date.

At 10:19 a.m., troopers learned a threat had also been made by a 7-year-old. That investigation is ongoing.

“The Pennsylvania State Police takes every threat reported to us with a zero-tolerance approach,” state police based in Warren said in a press release. “PSP will assess the validity of each alleged threat and investigate thoroughly on a case-by-case basis.”
