FORT BEND COUNTY – A student at Harmony School in Katy has been taken into custody after allegedly making a terroristic threat over text messages, reported the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.
It was said by officials that a 14-year-old student texted another student pictures of a gun and told them not to go to school.
The student reported the text messages they received to school staff who then reported the information to FBCSO.
“The investigation revealed the student bought plans online for $5 to make a gun via a 3D printer,” detailed FBCSO. “He gave the plans to a friend who ‘printed’ the gun parts.”
Law enforcement discovered the gun at the student’s residence after gaining parental consent to search the 14-year-old’s room.
FBCSO stated that the gun was not functional because the trigger and hammer were solid plastic and did not move. Also, the parts were super glued together.
“We take every school threat seriously,” stated Sheriff Troy Nehls. “I applaud the student who immediately informed her Teacher so action could be taken.”
The 14-year-old was transported to Fort Bend County Juvenile.
