FORT WORTH -- With everything going on, anything involving guns or threats of violence gets attention. On Thursday, Arlington Heights High School was placed on lockdown after an off-campus fight at a nearby McDonald's escalated into gunfire.
Two students were arrested. The alleged shooter has been charged with deadly conduct and unlawfully carrying a weapon. The second student was arrested for having an air pistol on campus.
And Friday morning, a third student was arrested at the school accused of making a terroristic threat after posting about retaliation.
Fort Worth ISD spokesperson Clint Bond was on hand as the school was under heavy police supervision when classes resumed Friday, “This morning we took a few extra security measures because parents were understandably concerned about the safety of their children.”
Security measures were strictly enforced Friday. All students were required to walk through metal detectors and show IDs. Bond continued, “Preventative measures are as important as anything else.”
