WARREN – An incident being described as “a possible terroristic threat” within the Warren Independent School District was reported on Friday.

In a statement from the district, Warren ISD acknowledged awareness of the threat, which was directed toward the district’s junior high campus. “It is being handled and investigated, with law enforcement being involved,” the statement read.

All parties involved, according to the statement, are safe and secure and there is no immediate danger at this time. Warren ISD Superintendent Rusty Minyard said that “everyone is safe,” and added that “we’ve got law enforcement personnel on all our campuses.”

Minyard explained that the threat itself was “not credible”; that the student in question “had no means to carry it out,” he said.

Sources indicate that Warren ISD held meetings on Tuesday regarding a plan of action and addressing the incident.

According to a source, the threat allegedly involved a student who threatened to shoot at the school. However, due to the fact that it is an ongoing criminal investigation, the district cannot speak about the nature of the threat at this time.

Warren ISD stated that the safety of both students and staff/faculty is the district’s “number one concern and priority at all times,” and that the district is taking the matter “very seriously.”

Minyard said in the event of such a situation, Warren ISD is prepared, and with this incident, once school officials were made aware, he said the situation was handled.

“We’re on top of the situation,” Minyard said. “This infraction is being handled in accordance with our student code of conduct.”
