Two 13-year-old female students were arrested yesterday afternoon at Tavares College after a school shooting threat was written in marker on a bathroom mirror.
The school’s resource assistant was notified when other students discovered the threat in one of the girls’ restrooms, and began to investigate.
The resource assistant was able to quickly identify the two students responsible.
One admitted to writing the threat with the other student.
When the deputies searched their backpacks, each had markers that matched the writing on the mirror.
Both girls were taken into custody and transported to the Lake County Detention Center.
