A 14-year-old was arrested after police said he claimed to have made a "hit list" and was planning to "inflict harm" at Ellison High School. 

Killeen ISD said that a freshman at Ellison High School was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat. 

Killeen ISD police immediately made the arrest. 

"Student safety is our number one priority every day and we will always arrest anyone who makes such a threat," said Superintendent John Craft.
