An investigation into an incident involving a 17-year-old student who allegedly made threats at the Pentecostal Light and Life Foundation a few weeks ago, has resulted in the recommendation of social intervention.
On June 1, the fifth-form student allegedly threatened to “shoot up the school,” after a confrontation earlier that week.
Tobago police and the THA Division of Education, Research and Technology have been investigating the incident.
According to police the student was said to have been disruptive during the English CXC examination.
His behaviour continued during the math exam and he was asked to leave the classroom and school premises.
Police said when the student left, a passer-by heard him “making utterances to the effect that he would get a gun and shoot up the school.” The passer-by told the principal about the statement and the student was later suspended.
The student and his parents were said to have been interviewed at their home last week.
Police also searched the house however nothing was found.
