KCSO: Student threatened to shoot at Carter Middle School
A student was taken into custody Monday, September 16, after the Knox County Sheriff’s Office said the 14-year-old posted a threat on social media to start shooting at Carter Middle School.
According to investigators, the post warned that the suspect, a student at the school, intended to “shoot that (Expletive) up."
On Monday morning, investigators questioned the student and said the student told them it was a joke.
