The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident of a threat to Black Mountain Elementary School in Golden Valley. Yesterday (8/28) after school hours, school staff were notified that a note had been located, written by an unidentified student, claiming an act of violence would occur today (8/29).
School staff alerted Sheriff’s Office Deputies and an email was sent to parents by the school district. After a thorough investigation, it has been determined that the threat was not viable.
Out of an abundance of caution, Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies, Detectives, and School Resource Officer were on scene at the school this morning to provide a law enforcement presence. This investigation is ongoing.
