Student charged with Bradford High School threat

BRADFORD (AP) - Authorities in White County have charged a student at Bradford High School with terroristic threatening after he allegedly threatened to shoot another student.

Superintendent Arthur Dunn said Friday that the student is home with his parents. Dunn couldn't say whether the student is under suspension or expelled but said the boy's parents would have to address the matter with the school board.

Dunn told The Daily Citizen that he learned Thursday night that a high school student had made a threat.

Bradford Police Chief Claude Money says the juvenile suspect claimed the threat was a joke. Police spoke to other students who said they witnessed the threat.

The suspect's name wasn't released because he is a juvenile.
