On March 9, the Delaware State Police was made aware by the Indian River School District that a student had made written threats aimed at the high school. Further investigation into this incident revealed that this student allegedly made written threats in a journal, specifically targeting the high school. The student had not been in attendance at the school since mid-January.
On April 2, the student responded to DSP Troop 5 in Bridgeville where she was charged with Attempt to Commit Assault (first degree); Conduct Creating Risk of Death Caused Serious Injury (felony); and Terroristic Threatening.
The teenager was arraigned before the Justice of the Peace Court and released on $21,000 unsecured bond.
