In Newton County, an 11-year-old boy made threats to his school at Oak Hill Elementary. He then showed a gun and posted a video of it on social media. An investigation immediately took place once the video was reported. So far, deputies say there weren’t any weapons found on the student or at the school.
The 11-year-old has not returned to the school, but will be charged for making threats via computer. One parent stated, “I will withdraw my child from school if he comes back.” Other parents feel that getting suspended is not enough to solve the matter.
