CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (CBS46) Four schools in the Cartersville School System were put on lockdown last Thursday after reports of a threat to an elementary school was made.
Authorities now say the juvenile responsible for calling an elementary school and making unspecified threats has been apprehended. To make matters worse, the juvenile is connected to similar incidents in other jurisdictions.
Though the suspect has not been publicly identified, CBS46 does know the juvenile is from Riverdale and facing charges for making terroristic threats and disruption of public investigation.
A letter was sent to parents stating in part, "While no students or staff were in any danger at any time today, we understand this was unnerving. We may not be able to control the poor choices made by some individuals in our world today, however, the one thing we can control is how we respond."
