According to West Haven police, a 14-year-old student at Engineering and Science University Magnet School made a verbal threat with graphic pictures.

Many students and parents reported this threat to authorities.

A junior high school student was arrested Wednesday, Feb. 21 for exhibition of a firearm, which is a Third Degree felony.

Footage has emerged on social media of a brutal student assault at Western Heights High School.

Another student at a different high school was arrested for possessing a gun on school property.

School administrators notified parents of the incident through the district's alert program and on social media.

Nevada law mandates expulsion for students who bring firearms or other unsafe weapons onto campus.

"All of us were walking to school anxious and walking into a place where we are usually happy, and ready to come and learn", Hobbs said.

Rotorua Police said a student has been suspended from the school pending further investigation by the Ministry of Education.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are working together to investigate a string of violence and violent threats occurring in multiple local schools in a single day.

"It's not that we're saying we need to take away guns".

John Sharp with WPD said Gage Allen, 17, of Walker, and a 16-year-old face charges.

In the wake of the recent mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, students are demanding change.

"Please take this opportunity to discuss school safety with your students". "And I'm frankly sorry that it was so hard on you and so hard on us and so hard on our students".

The student was arrested but not detained by the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice which means that she was released back into the care of her parent (s).
