Moses Lake third-grader removed for threatening school

The Associated Press

MOSES LAKE — A third-grader at a Moses Lake elementary school was removed on “emergency expulsion” after he told classmates he would come to school with a machine gun and pistols and shoot them all.

The website iFIBER One News reports the student at North Elementary was immediately confronted last Friday by counselors and administrators.

The principal, Doug Luiten, says after speaking with the boy’s mother, they determined the threat was not credible. Police and parents were notified.

The threat is still under investigation and the boy may be suspended or expelled.
