LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - The Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Office is informing parents and guardians of Grand Lake High School that a student has been arrested after the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint about a possible threat being made on the school on Oct. 9, 2019.

The Sheriff’s Office says that during its investigation it determined that the threat was made after school hours, but on school grounds, by a 16-year-old student.

The student was arrested for terrorizing.

Officials say the student did not have any weapons.

The Cameron Parish School Board asks all parents and guardians of students to discuss the seriousness of making any kinds of threats towards schools, school staff, or any other students. These kinds of threats will be investigated regardless of if they are on campus, off campus, on social media, at school functions, or anywhere else.

The Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Department says it takes the safety of all students, faculty, and staff of their schools very seriously and like the Cameron Parish School Board has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to these types of complaints.
