On Wednesday (8/31), Deputies with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office received a report of multiple students that were plotting a shooting at Kingman High School. Deputies initially responded and began identifying and talking with individuals reportedly involved. This investigation went into the late evening hours and some of the students were unable to be contacted.

On Thursday (9/1), Deputies and Detectives provided additional security at the school as the investigation continued. Detectives made contact with several students and conducted interviews in reference to the allegations. During the course of the investigation, Detectives identified two students, a fourteen and fifteen year old female, that were found to have been plotting the shooting. The two students were immediately suspended from school pending the conclusion of this investigation. The investigation revealed that the two students had relationship issues and stated they had been bullied by some of the students, to which they had intended on fatally wounding. Although the manner was not specific, the intent was. The two students
had comprised a list of students in which they intended to cause harm to. The list was later recovered from one of the students and had the names of fourteen students in which they intended to target. The parents of those students on the list were immediately contacted and advised of the threat.
At the conclusion of this investigation, Detectives arrested the two juveniles involved with the threat. The juveniles were both charged with Making a Terrorist Threat, a class 3 felony, and booked into the Mohave County Juvenile Detention Facility.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has a zero tolerance stance against any threat or disruption to our educational facilities, their students, or their faculty.
