KPD Investigates School Threats
On Wednesday, February 28, 2018, detectives with the Criminal Investigation Division – Special Victims Unit were notified about a social media post that suggested a threat of violence to the Audie Murphy Middle School, Roy J Smith Middle School as well as other local area schools in general. The post was sent out in the early morning hours on Tuesday, February 27, 2018, and detectives have been working diligently on these threats day and night. With the cooperation of the social media providers, the detectives were able to locate the suspect in this case. A search warrant was obtained and a 12 year-old juvenile was arrested for Terroristic Threat.
The Killeen Police Department takes these threats very seriously and acts promptly with respect to them to protect the students and staff of KISD schools and the citizens of our community.
We would like to thank the Killeen Independent School District, KISD Police Department, Fort Hood Criminal Investigation Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the citizens of our community for assisting with this investigation.
