Glover Middle School student arrested for making threat towards staff

SPOKANE, Wash. — A male student was arrested for making threats of violence toward staff at Glover Middle School.

The Spokane Police Department arrested a minor for three counts of felony harassment (threats to kill) on Wednesday following an investigation.

Spokane Police says a staff member notified the department about the threat, and that the student was suspended prior to making the threat.

“The FBI takes threats of violence against schools, individuals, and community groups seriously,” said Donald Voiret, Special Agent in charge of the FBI Seattle Field Office. “We applaud the swift actions of the Spokane Police Department and value our partnerships with our local law enforcement agencies to address these threats immediately.”

The student made his first appearance in juvenile court on Thursday and currently remains in custody.
