Lake Charles, LA –
Between Friday, October 29 and Tuesday, November 2, detectives with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office have been investigating several threats in reference to a shooting occurring at Lake Charles College Prep.
During the investigation detectives interviewed a 14 year old student who attends LCCP. During questioning the girl confirmed she was responsible for creating one of the threats. Detectives were also able to trace an IP address that was obtained during the investigation back to the student’s home address.
She was arrested and is currently being booked into the Juvenile Detention Center and charged with terrorizing.
“We have a zero tolerance when it comes to threatening harm to other students along with the faculty at our schools in Calcasieu Parish. It is not something that is taken lightly,” stated Sheriff Tony Mancuso. “I encourage parents to take the time to talk to your children and explain the seriousness of making these threats. Since January of this year we have made 7 arrests for terrorizing; this is not a joking matter and students need to know they will be arrested if they make threats toward a school, staff, or other students. The safety of our children is always our top priority.”
CPSO Detective Greg Jordan is the lead investigator on these cases.
The investigation is continuing and more arrests and charges are possible.
An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged. A person is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
