Update: Disabled Teen Threatens To "Shoot Up" Local Schools

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

Police have issued an update in regard to threats made at schools in Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. 

On Monday, multiple Davie Police units responded to Nova Middle/High School around 11 a.m. in regards to a threat. 

An anonymous person called the administration office on the phone and said that they were on their way over to “shoot up the school”. 

The school went into its “code red” lockdown protocol as police personnel cleared buildings, common areas, and parking lots. Once it was determined that the threat was not credible, the “code red” was lifted and the students were allowed to return to class.

Within an hour of the incident, Davie Police detectives were able to locate a 15-year-old, 9th grade high school male. 

It was determined that it was the teen who had called and made shooting threats to three schools; Nova Middle/High School in Davie, Cocoa High in Cocoa, and John F. Kennedy Middle School in North Miami Beach. 

During an interview with the 15-year-old authorities say they learned that he is deemed Intellectually Disabled. 

The information in regards to the threats call at Nova Middle/High School will be transcribed and sent to the Broward County State Attorney’s Office (juvenile division) for review.
