Students charged in North Texas school attack plan – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

A total of three students were found responsible for a document. District officials said they participated in a plan to attack a high school and named 32 students and staff members as targets, according to a letter Northwest ISD sent to families Monday.

All three have been charged with a misdemeanor count of terroristic threats, according to the district.

Other students were involved in the investigation, but according to the district, they did not appear to have been involved in a terrorist threat.

In a statement obtained by NBC 5, Northwest ISD said a parent alerted administrators at Truett Wilson Middle School about a “concerning document” on Wednesday, May 1, and that upon reviewing the report, the district discovered a detailed plan to close the campus to attack.

Northwest ISD confirmed that the online document also included a “watchlist” of 25 students and seven staffers from Wilson Middle School.

The district cooperated with Fort Worth police in the investigation.
