A 16-year-old boy was arrested on Wednesday, Sept. 7, in connection with threats made involving Inglemoor High School on Instagram in June.
The Inglemoor student posted messages threatening to “shoot up” the high school, which cancelled classes on June 15. School officials reported the threats to law enforcement, according to a police statement sent on Sept. 8.
“Me and my girls are done with life and want to put an end to all this pain and suffering,” a June 14 post read. “We just want a simple way out but we have no choice everyone do not come to school tomorrow ima waste everyone.”
This was followed by gun emojis and ended with “good by IHS.”
As part of the investigation, detectives served a search warrant at a Kenmore home where the boy was living. The boy was arrested for Felony Harassment and released to his parents, according to the statement.
The King County Sheriff’s Office, which is contracted to police the City of Kenmore, led the investigation.
