SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) -

St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested another middle school student Thursday morning for terrorizing.

Shortly before 9 a.m., deputies responded to Clearwood Junior High School in Slidell in reference to an incident that occurred on a school bus. While riding on the bus, a 10-year-old student told another student to get his mom’s gun and shoot people, according to investigators.

While at the school investigating that incident, it was discovered that the same student was involved in a separate incident that occurred earlier in the day. In that incident, the student was walking with other students in the hallway when he said loudly, “School shooting day, school shooting day.”

After investigating both incidents, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested the 10-year-old on two counts of terrorizing. He was booked into the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center.

“The safety of our schools and your children is of the utmost importance to us,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “We will continue to work with our schools to investigate any and all threats on our schools and to the students who attend them. I am asking to parents to sit down with your children, regardless of how old or young, and explain to them the seriousness of making comments like these.”?

"I don't see anything right there that would make me stop."   Broussard isn't the only person who...
