Offense: Terroristic Threats
Case Number: 1606170063

Corpus Christi Police are investigating a terroristic threats complaint Friday morning which prompted a lock down of Flour Bluff High School.

A 38-year-old woman reported the threat to Corpus Christi Police Friday morning and explained that she was a concerned parent who saw the threat on her daughters Twitter feed.

The 38-year-old woman told Officers a 17-year-old male former school acquaintance of her daughter got involved in an argument on Twitter. The 38-year-old woman told Officers it appeared to her that personal comments upset the 17-year-old man.

Officers responded to Flour Bluff high school to inform staff of the vague threat which may have involved the High School as a target of a violent action. The school only had the Latchkey program on campus which included 110 students and staff.

Corpus Christi Police Officers stayed on the campus for guard duty while this case was investigated.  Officers learned that the 17-year-old man had transferred to the Corpus Christi Independent School District, and Officers contacted the Chief of School District Police who responded with assistance. Corpus Christi Police contacted the 17-year-old man at a different part of town from the school at 12:07PM for an interview, and the school lock-down was lifted.

The 17-year-old man was released, but Corpus Christi Police continue to investigate this terroristic threats complaint. Anyone with any additional information about this case should contact the Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS or submit the information online at http://www.888TIPS.com. Information provided to Crime Stoppers is entirely confidential.
