Two More Threats Made by Brookville Area High School Students


BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – In what seems to be a perverse game of one-upmanship, two more threats of school violence occurred this week at Brookville Area High School.

According to Brookville Police Chief Vince Markle, two Brookville female students have been charged after they made threats.

On Monday, a female juvenile posted on Instagram that two men were going to come to the pep rally on Friday at the high school and shoot cheerleaders.

She was charged with terroristic threats in juvenile court.

Chief Markle said the pep rally is still taking place.

Then, on Thursday, another female student at the high school made a bomb threat.

According to Chief Markle, the student was charged with disorderly conduct, also in juvenile court.

“We are really urging students and parents to report any threatening posts or comments about threats to the school or students,” said Robin Fillman, Brookville School District Superintendent.

The first at Brookville Area High School occurred March 1 when a 14-year-old male student made a shooting threat at the school.

Brookville Borough Police filed charges after they were notified of threats made by the suspect.

Mulitple sources alerted police of the suspect’s plans involving a potential school shooting.

Investigators interviewed the boy and he provided them with his plans and said he had “homicidal thoughts.”

Since the deadly February 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla., threats of violence have occurred all over the region, several at area schools in Jefferson, Clarion, and Venango Counties.
