Colfax student in custody after posting threat on social media


Colfax Police Chief Rick McNannay said Thursday night that a high school student was taken into custody.

Around 5:00 p..m., a Colfax High School Counselor came to the Colfax Police Department to report that students had shown her a posting on social media made by a fellow student.

The posting read: "I'm going to shoot up the school," according to a press release.

Officers interviewed the students and the juvenile suspect.

After the suspect was taken into custody, officers also removed "all firearms" from the suspect's house.

The weapons were surrendered to Law Enforcement.

The Colfax Police Department is working closely with the Colfax School District to ensure the safety to students, staff, faculty, and visitors both on and off the school property.

At this time, there is no indication anyone was in immediate danger, McNannay said.

The juvenile was arrested on the charge of Threats to Bomb or Injure Property.
