A school district in South Texas shut down campuses for the remainder of this week after police discovered an AK-47 and an apparent kill list in a suspect’s home.
The Donna Independent School District shut down campuses after receiving what they are calling a “credible threat”:
In light of the recent events and in an abundance of caution, we will be canceling school district-wide classes and staff will work from home. The safety and security of our students & staff are our first priority. Classes will resume on Tuesday morning.
The Monitor first reported the issue, which quoted an unnamed official stating that authorities had found an AK-47 and a list of students at the home of a “suspect.” The local newspaper claimed there were two or three suspects behind the plot to carry out a shooting at one of the Donna ISD schools. It remains unclear if the suspects are students.
The discovery of the plot comes days after an 18-year-old killed 19 students and two teachers at Robb Elementary in Uvalde Texas, Breitbart Texas reported. The shooting has pushed several school districts in Texas to heighten their awareness.
