Harrisburg student accused of threatening school

— Authorities have arrested a student at Harrisburg High School on accusations he threatened to “shoot up” the school.

Poinsett County Sheriff Larry Mills says the 18-year-old student was arrested last week on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening.

Mills tells the Jonesboro Sun that a witness heard the student’s verbal threat against the school. The school’s superintendent and principal then contacted police.

The sheriff says the student was not at school Friday, and authorities arrested him at his house.

The student has not been formally charged. He’s being held in lieu of $100,000 bond in the Poinsett County jail and is due in court Thursday.

Harrisburg Superintendent Danny Sample said the school has zero-tolerance policy when it comes to threats.
