Two teens arrested in connection to Clay Middle School Threats

CLAY, W.Va. (WSAZ) — A 13 and 14 year-old have been charged in connection to making threats at Clay Middle School.

According to West Virginia State Police , Corporal P. A. Green and Trooper T. D. McFeeley of the Clay Detachment both teens are from Clay, West Virginia.

The pair is charged with making terroristic threats, conspiracy to commit murder, and solicitation to commit murder.

According to WVSP More juveniles could be charged as a result.

At the end of April school administrators in Clay found out about the threat that they said was “on-par” with the Columbine shootings.

While school leaders assured parents that the problem was being handled, uncertainty and no arrests in the case forced administrators to cancel school for three days during the first week in May.

Security has been visible at the middle school since the threats, that were supposed to be carried out on April 20, 2016, were brought to the attention of school leaders.
