FBI FIRST DISCOVERED SCHOOL THREAT IN CARBONDALE

18 YEAR OLD SENIOR SUSPECTED IN ON LINE THREAT

Carbondale—The FBI was first to discover the online threat made against Roaring Fork High School this morning that led to the shutdown of every high school campus in the RE-1 School District.  Federal agents contacted the Carbondale Police Department since the IP address of the computer that was used originated from the area.   No details are being released at this time regarding the nature of the threat or the person responsible except that it was written by an 18 year old high school senior.  After confirming the threat with the Roaring Fork School District, students and faculty members from Glenwood Springs, Roaring Fork and Basalt High Schools were sent home while elementary and middle schools were placed on lockout.  During a lockout, all doors are locked while staff members are on high alert and extra police officers are on site.  In addition to the three RE-1 high schools, Yampah Mountain and Bridges elected to close for the day.  Authorities are asking citizens who may have any information regarding today’s online threat to call the Carbondale Police Department at 963-2662 or through the Safe To Tell program at safe2tell.org.
