North Idaho Teens Arrested After Hit Lists Discovered

Sep 30, 2016

Authorities have arrested two Idaho teenagers they say brought hit lists to school.

The Rathdrum Police Department tells the Spokesman-Review that the junior high school students were arrested Wednesday after they were each discovered with a list of three names. Investigators say these were separate incidents and no other students were involved.

The arrested students are 13 and 14 years old.

Lakeland schools Superintendent Becky Meyer says the first list contained generic first names and did not identify specific students. It was discovered Tuesday.

School staff notified police Wednesday. Officials say the second note was discovered during the police investigation and contained one student's full name and two first names.

The students could be charged with making a threat of violence at school and could face expulsion.
