Press release from the Henry County Sheriff’s Office
On February 9, 2018 at 10:10 am a threatening message was discovered at G. W. Carver Elementary School. The Henry County Sheriff’s Office and school officials worked together to make sure our students and staff were safe.
Through the course of the investigation, a male student was developed as a suspect. The suspect subsequently confessed this was a hoax and there was never a threat to the students.
The suspect has been charged with threats to bomb or burn. He has been released to the custody of his parents.
Parents are urged to have conversations with their children, encouraging them to immediately report any type of threat they hear and also not be involved in these acts as they can have serious legal repercussions.
