GRANDVIEW Police arrested juvenile “conspirators” Sunday night who allegedly plotted an attack on Grandview High School.
While police were mum on the arrests, the School District confirmed both the threat and the arrests at about 7 p.m.
“On Friday, Feb. 23, several students overheard a conversation that allegedly involved a threat toward Grandview High School,” a statement released by the district on social media said. “Those students did the right thing and reported what they heard to school administrators, who contacted the district’s School Resource Officer and involved the Grandview Police Department.
On Sunday, Feb. 25, the police obtained warrants for the suspected conspirators and they were arrested.”
The statement included the following from Police Chief Kal Fuller:
“Although we still have follow-up to do, we do not believe there is any ongoing threat to anyone in the Grandview School District.”
As of press time, police had not released any information on the arrests.
“The Grandview School District would like to thank the Grandview Police Department and some very honorable students for helping keep our schools safe,” the social media posting said.
“The Grandview School District appreciates the relationship we have with the Grandview Police Department and we want the community to know we take these matters seriously. We are all working together to ensure the safety of our students.”
