Two Clear Brook High School Students arrested over threats to shoot up the school


On the day that marks the anniversary of the Columbine High School Massacre  of  April 20, 1999, which left twelve dead and twenty-one injured,  two juveniles were arrested Thursday for an incident at Clear Brook High School, in the Houston suburb of Friendswood.  


The Harris County District Attorney’s Office is currently reviewing charges stemming from the incident.


The juveniles, whose identities are protected due to their ages, were said to have posted the following statements on social media:


Juvenile 1:

The subject is said to have forewarned students not to attend school today because he was going to shoot up the school. He posted a video on social media with a gun stating that, he was practicing for tomorrow's shooting. He told a school official he was practicing for shooting up the school.



Juvenile 2

The Subject told several students not to come to school today because at 10:30 he was going to honor his heroes the “Columbine Shooters.” He posted a photo on social media of himself pointing a pistol at two schoolmates in the hallway.  


The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office, which made the arrests, is handling the investigation.
