Riesel High School Student Threatens to Shoot Up School


A Riesel high school student is behind bars on Friday night for threatening to shoot up his high school.

Roger Reed, 17, faces one terroristic threat charge, which is a felony. He's accused of threatening to shoot students at Riesel High School on Friday.

Police Chief Danny Krumnow say students were making complaints about Reed to the principal. Police were then called to the school. When school officials searched Reed's backpack and locker, they didn't find any weapons, but they did find letters in his bag which Krumnow says were credible to his threats.

Krumnow wasn't specific what was in those letters, but that was enough to arrest Reed.

Another student was arrested at the school for assault, but that incident is not connected to Reed. His name is not being released since he is a  minor. 

Krumnow said Reed was charged with a terroristic threat because it involved a large number of people. Reed is expected to see a judge on Saturday where his bond will be set.
