Corona High School Student Arrested for Threats Against School

On the morning of January 26th a teacher on campus advised a resource officer that a public WiFi network labeled with a bomb threat directed at the school was appearing as an available network.

Police say on Thursday night they received information about a threat towards Harrison County High School.

A student at Port Charlotte High School was arrested Friday afternoon for "Disruption of a School Function".

State police responded to the 14-year-old suspect's home, where they took statements from the student and parents, determining that the student was "threatening to come to school today with weapons with rifles and shoot four students", Bower said.

The alleged plot - which was uncovered Thursday - called for an attack to take place on Friday, just days after high school shootings in Kentucky and Texas this week, officials said. That's what he said, he didn't like them.

With that threat still under investigation, district officials made a decision to put the school on lock down. While buses were en route, however, police discovered the original threat was credible.

That second suspect was 18-year-old Brandon Isles, who now sits in Bourbon County Jail facing charges of terroristic threatening and harassing communications.

Local law enforcement is investigating.

Police did not identify either teen amid the ongoing investigation.
