2 Wentzville aldermen want a police officer in every school


WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A student at Timberland High School was taken into custody after threatening to carry out a shooting at a football game, the Wentzville School District said.

The district says a student from Timberland High School posted a social media threat that read, “the holt football game finna get shot up.”

The student was later taken into custody, the district says. The post was taken down.

The district says the post was “a case of poor judgment” and is asking parents to talk with kids about being responsible on social media.

Extra police will be at the football game Friday, the district said.
