Teen detained after threat at Holy Family Catholic High School
Authorities say a teenager has been detained after allegedly threatening to shoot people at his Carver County high school.
According to the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to Holy Family Catholic High School in Victoria to investigate a report of threats being made by a student at around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The sheriff’s office says the incident happened Monday on school property before baseball practice and during an altercation with another student. That’s when they say the suspect — identified as a 15-year-old boy — threatened to beat another student with a baseball and cleats, and also allegedly said he had a list of people he wanted to shoot.
Members of the administration team were told that evening about the threat, and then told the suspect’s parents the teen must stay home during the investigation.
The suspect was then taken to the Carver County Juvenile Detention Center after he was found at his Minnetrista home.
Authorities add that some students captured the threats on video and gave them to the sheriff’s office.
No other details were immediately available.
