School Shooting Threat

October 3, 2006- Posted at 6:37 p.m. CDT

Black Rock, AR_Four seventh grade students from Black Rock are being held in the Lawerence County Jail after phoning in a shooting threat this afternoon.


It's believed the students phoned in the threat as a joke.
The suspects told 911 operators at 1:00 p.m. this afternoon that a shooting was going to start in the next 15 minutes from on top of the school gym.

When authorities realized it was just a hoax they used the recorded 911 tape to identify the students.

No charges have been filed yet but the suspects will appear before a juvenille judge tomorrow.
