Second Alleged 'Hit List' Surfaces at Idaho High School

Posted By on Wed, Nov 19, 2014 at 8:21 AM

In the shadow of the discovery of a reported "hit list" at a North Idaho school, which left some parents furious over not being notified of the incident, a second alleged list has now surfaced.

Alarms were first raised earlier this month when a shop teacher at Kellogg High School discovered a so-called "shank" hidden beneath some storage lockers. The teacher said he cut the alleged weapon into pieces and chose not to notify authorities, but on Nov. 7, the Shoshone County Sheriff's Office began notifying parents of children whose names were found on a list allegedly containing threats. School officials said the student suspected of making the list was "removed from school" on the day the list was discovered, but the district didn't "want to create any kind of hysteria."

But now, KREM-TV is reporting that the Shoshone County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that a second list belonging to the suspect containing 32 names has surfaced. Law enforcement said the student is not talking to the sheriff's department, but has been arrested. 

Meanwhile, the Kellogg school district said the teacher who first destroyed the shank violated district protocol.
