2 students arrested for threat at Kaufman High School

- Two Kaufman High School students are accused of threatening to shoot up the campus.

The school district said several Snapchat images were sent implying a shooting would happen on Monday.

One juvenile student was taken into custody Sunday for making a false alarm or report involving a public school, which is a state jail felony.

Investigators identified a second male student Monday and charged him with making a terroristic threat, which is a third-degree felony.

“With this second arrest, both the student that made the original comments regarding the act of violence and the student that perpetuated the allegations via social media are in custody and will not be on campus on Monday,” Kaufman ISD Police Chief Pete Ferrara said in a release.

Kaufman High School had extra security on campus Monday morning as a precaution. The district said it was committed to maintaining a safe and secure school environment.
