Police investigate alleged threat against Edinburgh school

Perceived threats against area schools continue. David Mann, Edinburgh Police Chief, says that his department received a report on Wednesday from school administrators that a 16-year-old student at the Edinburgh Educational Resource Center had drawn a sketch resembling a classroom. Mann says that, within the drawing, there were sketches of a semi-automatic pistol and of bodies identified by student and teacher names on the sheet showing what appeared to be gunshot wounds. The student then reportedly showed the drawing to other students, who reported it to teachers.

Mann says the student left the school before police arrived. However, he was taken into custody outside of his home and transported to the Bartholomew County Detention Center on a preliminary charge of Intimidation, a class 6 felony.

Authorities stress that no weapon was found on school grounds, however they say the student was in possession of marijuana when taken into custody.
