Concerning School Violence Threats Near Queen Anne

Violence in schools is always appalling, horrible, and ultimately heartbreaking. After the terrible tragedy of the shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School, the more recent instances of school violence at schools near Queen Anne are especially distressing.

Last Monday, October 27th, a 16-year-old student at the Seattle Center’s Center School was arrested for bringing Molotov cocktail to school. Police had received a tip that the student brought the device, and promptly arrived on the scene to take the student into custody. As a precaution, the school was evacuated. No one was injured in the incident. The Center School officials cancelled classes for the day after the arrest, and Seattle Center Armory was re-opened just before 11 a.m. While SPD detectives continue to investigate this incident of school violence, they do plan to book the student into the Youth Service Center of King County for possession of an incendiary device.

After the June 5th shooting at Seattle Pacific University earlier this year, where one student was killed and two others were wounded, it is horrific that the local private university should experience another threat of school violence. But the campus was put on lockdown on Friday, October 31st after one of its students received a threatening text message. Reportedly, the text message came from the student’s ex-girlfriend, stating that she was going to kill the student and his friends on the SPU campus. The student reported the text to school officials and police, who responded quickly. SPD determined that the woman was no where near the campus, and she was located and arrested at a home near Burlington by Skagit County deputies. The suspect has been booked into King County Jail for an investigation into harassment.

Queen Anne parents, please continue to encourage your students to report any suspicious or concerning events to school authorities and police. The safety of our schools and our community is of utmost importance.
