Students charged with making death threat

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Police say they arrested two Connecticut middle school students for threatening to kill a classmate after the principal found an 8-inch knife in one of their lockers.

Police in Norwalk say a 12-year-old student at Nathan Hale Middle School and his 13-year-old friend are charged with threatening, carrying a dangerous weapon and conspiracy.

Authorities didn't release their names because of juvenile offender laws.

Police say the 12-year-old boy was apparently upset about a phone conversation he had with the intended victim last week and brought the knife to school last Wednesday. Officials say the 13-year-old boy held the knife in his locker for his friend.

The Hour of Norwalk reports that Principal Robert McCain learned about the knife from other students Wednesday.
