Placeholder Image

A student at C.W. Davis Middle School in South Hall County has been suspended following the discovery of a vague threat written on a wall in the boys' restroom.

Administration learned of the threat Thursday morning and called law enforcement. A student was quickly identified and confessed he wrote the threat, according to Gordon Higgins, spokesman for Hall County Schools.

The suspect, who is not being identified because he is a juvenile, is charged with terroristic threats, interference with government property (because the message was written on the wall), and possession of a weapon in a school zone, according to Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks of the Hall County Sheriff's Office.

Wilbanks said in an email the student had two small pocketknives. The incident is still being investigated.
