Cony Middle School student charged with terrorizing
AUGUSTA (WGME) – A Cony Middle School student was summonsed with "terrorizing" after police say he made an alleged gun threat while in school.
Augusta police say on Tuesday a middle school student had a discussion about a firearm with other students at the school. They say the administration and the school's resource officer were notified and then that student and his parents were brought in for questioning.
Police say over the last three days they've conducted multiple interviews about the threat and don't believe the student was going to act on the alleged threat. Cony High School Principal Kim Silsby posted some information on the school's Facebook page.
"Please know that the safety of our students and staff are our highest priority. We have taken all of the appropriate measures to ensure the safety of our school. We understand parents, students and community members have concerns however, we are not able to share more specific information about our investigations."
That male juvenile was summons for terrorizing; the case will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office.
