Boy, 13, faces felony charges for threats

VANCOUVER, Wash. — A 13-year-old boy accused of making death threats against students and staff at a middle school in Battle Ground is facing two felony charges.

According to documents filed in Clark County Juvenile Court, the teen is accused of posting two anonymous threats on a message board on the school’s website the night of Sept. 10. The threats said he would kill everyone and that the threats would be carried out on Sept. 11. It also warned people to look for bombs.

The Columbian newspaper reported that administrators decided to close Chief Umtuch Middle School the next day due to the threat.

Court records show investigators traced the posts to the teen, a student at the school. He faces a charge of making threats to bomb and a charge of harassment death threats.
