A verbal threat of terrorism prohibited a Will Rogers Middle School student from returning to school on the last day of this academic year.
According to a police report, a concerned parent told authorities that a 14-year-old student had threatened to “blow up the school on the last day (of the school year).”
Detective Chris Leamon of the Miami Police Department made contact with the student and his guardian shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday.
“He told me that he got angry at two other students who had been picking on him and told them that he was going to blow up the school,” Leamon said.
According to Leamon, the student said he did not know how to make a bomb and has never attempted to gain knowledge of how to make an explosive device.
After making contact with school officials, Leamon said it was decided that the student would not be allowed to return to school on Friday.
The Office of Juvenile Services was contacted and police officials say further disciplinary action could be taken pending an investigation.
