A 13-year-old girl could face criminal charges after authorities say she allegedly threatened to shoot students and staff at Pacific Cascade Middle School in Issaquah.
According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were made aware of the threats on Monday night after receiving a call from someone who had seen the alleged threats online.
“The threats were to shoot specific individuals who work at the school as well as toward students,” sheriff’s spokeswoman Sgt. DB Gates wrote in a news release.
Deputies identified the teenage girl as the suspect behind the threats, Gates wrote. The school district was notified.
Gates said “it is expected that charges of felony harassment will be referred to the King County Prosecutor’s Office within a week.”
