Student arrested for making threats toward Douglass School

An underage student was arrested Dec. 15 for threatening to harm students at the Douglass School in Leesburg, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies last week became aware of threats the student posted on social media on Oct. 24 and Dec. 7. The threats were made toward the Douglass School, an alternative public school housed in the building that was once Loudoun’s first segregated high school.

The student was charged with two counts of electronically threatening harm to a school. He is currently being held at the Loudoun County Juvenile Detention Center.


Dino - Without knowing the details, how can you saying such things like this is a gross overreaction or kids will be kids? What are you suggesting?  Kids can’t and don’t hurt and kill?  How old do they need to be for you to consider them dangerous?

It’s a historical school that could be a target based on its history.  Sorry that you couldn’t connect the dots on that one.  Also, kids will be kids, this is a gross overreaction.

Tell us why you need to state it was county’s first segregated school?  Why do you continue to foment disunity?
