Navarro Intermediate School Threat Investigation
On February 5th, 2020 the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office and Administrators with the Navarro ISD initiated an investigation into a report of a threat of violence at the Navarro Intermediate School. In this case it was discovered that words threatening a school shooting were written in pencil on the wall of a sixth grade bathroom. The words were accompanied with drawn images resembling pistols and a bomb.
The joint investigation between Navarro ISD and The Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office involved the review of surveillance video and interviewing multiple persons, to include students, parents and other school staff. The Texas Department of Public Safety also assisted in evaluating the words written on the wall for comparison analysis to the students known handwriting.
As of today, 2/7/2020, two twelve year old juvenile males have been identified as having a primary role in this incident. Both juveniles have been detained in the Guadalupe County Juvenile Detention Center for the offense of Terroristic Threat. Due to their status as Juveniles, their names are withheld.
Throughout the investigation, the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office has provided extra security and presence at Navarro ISD until the investigation is completed. As these two juveniles have been detained, the Guadalupe County Sheriff's Office has no further concerns for any threats of violence at Navarro ISD.
