A sixth grader at William James Middle School was arrested on Wednesday for making threats toward students and faculty.

From BCSO:
Today the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office School Resource
Deputy, Bubba Revell, was notified by the administration of William
James Middle School about a 12 year old student making threats
towards students and faculty. “The threat was made by simulating
having a firearm and acting as though he was shooting towards
them”. Immediately, Deputy Revell was advised of the threats in which
he took swift action and made contact with the student. After the
initial investigation, it was confirmed the student did in fact act as
though he had a firearm and simulated shooting towards students and
faculty. Based on the direct observation of the faculty member who
witnessed this student’s actions, Deputy Revell, arrested the 6th grade
student and charged him with 1 count of TERRORISTIC THREATS
and 1 count of DISRUPTING A PUBLIC SCHOOL. The juvenile
arrested was transported to the Bulloch County Jail where he was
booked in on the charges. The juvenile will be turned over to the
custody of his parents and the case has been sent to the Department of
Juvenile Justice and the District Attorney’s Office for further court
proceedings. Should anyone have information about this case you are
asked to call Deputy Bubba Revell at (912)486-5926.
