Kentucky State Troopers Thwart School Shooting
What was considered an imminent threat is no longer a threat of any kind, thanks to the Kentucky State Police.
According to a WKYT-Lexington report, Anderson County schools, in central Kentucky, were closed Friday after it was determined that a "high potential" threat was present.
The suspect, 20-year-old Dylan Jarrell, was arrested, Thursday, after an investigation by state police and, in particular, Trooper Josh Satterly, who received a phone call from a woman in New Jersey who'd been harassed by Jarrell, was a student in the nearby Shelby County district years ago.
The WKYT report goes on to say that Jarrell was arrested for terroristic threatening and harassing communications after he was stopped while backing out of his driveway.
In Jarrell's vehicle, authorities discovered "a firearm, more than 200 rounds of ammunition, a Kevlar vest, a 100-round high capacity magazine and a detailed plan of attack."
Another threat was also made against schools in Shelby County, where good friends of mine live.
Federal and local authorities assisted Kentucky State Police in the investigation and federal CHARGES are not off the table.
