WACO, Texas (KWTX) A Midway High School student was arrested Tuesday morning after showing up with a pellet gun and making “a verbal threat in the presence of witnesses,” interim Principal Brent Merritt said in a letter to parents.
The pellet gun was not loaded, Merritt said.
“The student and pellet gun were detained before the first bell. No students were in direct danger or harmed,” he wrote.
The 16-year-old student, who was not identified, faces a misdemeanor charge of terroristic threat, Merritt said in the letter.
“Threats towards other students are taken very seriously by MHS administrators, and we will do all we can to maintain the safety and security of our students and staff,” he said.
