An online death threat directed toward the Wahluke High School’s homecoming resulted in the arrest of a student this week.
Wahluke school officials and the Grant County Sheriff’s Office investigated the threat and were able to connect an IP address to a suspect. After further investigation, that suspect was arrested and booked into the Grant County juvenile justice system.
The sheriff’s office does not believe there is any credibility to the verbalized threat and there was no evidence of a formalized plan or any actual preparation.
Wahluke’s homecoming week starts Monday, October 1.
