A 17 year old male has been arrested in connection to a threat at Millard South High School Tuesday afternoon. The teen was booked on two counts terroristic threats.
Omaha police were notified by a parent of two students at the school that they received a text message of a fight at dismissal time. Police report the threat was unsubstantiated but sent officers to the school as a precaution.
District spokesperson Rebecca Kleeman says, “In light of everything that has been happening in the last week, in an abundance of caution, they sent officers to the school. Our understanding is that the threat came from someone who does not go to Millard Public Schools but is known to these students.”
It was back in 2011, Assistant Principal Vicki Kaspar was killed and Principal, Dr. Curtis Case was seriously injured in a shooting at Millard South. The gunman was a 17 year old student who later took his own life.
