Harrison Moves Basketball Game Over Threat
HARRISON, Mont. (AP) — A school in southwestern Montana is moving its basketball practices and this week’s game after a student who brought guns to school last year and is charged with making more threats was released to the custody of his parents.
Harrison Superintendent Fred Hofman said Tuesday the school would move its practices and Friday’s homecoming game against Sheridan to Willow Creek, which is just over 25 miles away. Harrison and Willow Creek students play on the same basketball and volleyball teams.
The boy was arrested in January 2013 after bringing guns to school. He reached a plea agreement in May that called for treatment and probation.
Hoffman says the 15-year-old boy was recently charged with a felony for telling another student that he planned to go through with the shootings and blow up the school.
