BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Two teenage boys are accused of leaving notes threatening a mass shooting at Andrew Jackson Middle School, according to the Titusville Police Department.
The investigation began Feb. 21 when a student handed an administrator a note found in the bathroom, which prompted a lockdown at the school.
“These students had written notes, signed their names on them and had them delivered to the administration and basically saying that they were going to carry out a school shooting,” Brevard Public Schools assistant superintendent Matt Reed said.
Police said they went to the 500 wing boys’ bathroom and found two notes. Each note appeared to be written by a different student and said that the student was “going to shoot up Andrew Jackson Middle.”
There was also a map of the school with each wing labeled a number one through six, in addition to a drawing on the mirror of a rectangle with “AJMS” written inside and the word “kaboom” written over it, according to the affidavit.
