Brownsboro ISD superintendent, Dr. Chris Moran said, “Our school district chief of police and campus administration did an exceptional job of using common sense to preserve the integrity of the school day, while at the same time, responding quickly and effectively to the threat.”
The Brownsboro Police Department, Henderson County Sheriff, and BISD Police force coordinated an effort to protect the campus efficiently and the suspect was arrested in Smith County shortly after the threat was reported.
Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt said he was not sure of the entire threat, but stated “someone said they were going to kill a kid.”
Moran added, “Parents, students, and staff in Brownsboro ISD, which includes the City of Chandler, should feel confident to know that school safety and the safety of our students is the most important thing.”
The Shelter-In-Place ended an hour after the information was reported, and students at Brownsboro High School did not miss any instructional time.
The suspect, who has not been identified, was charged with terroristic threat, a third-degree felony and transported to Henderson County Jail where he is being held on $10,000 bond.
