Student Expelled For Death Threats

Posted 12/23/2013 11:16 AM by CKCHAMBERLIN

On Friday morning, December 20th, 2013, Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy Scott Streltzoff was advised of a threat call at East Valley High School. Deputy Streltzoff, who is assigned to the East Valley School District as their Resource Deputy, met with school officials who told him the following incident took place on Thursday, December 19th, at the high school.

Deputy Streltzoff was told that the previous day a 14-year-old male student told one of his teachers that he would like to kill every person in the classroom, including his teacher. He told his teacher it was nothing personal with her. The student said he had a plan in place to carry out his threats. School officials made the decision to expel the student. Before Deputies were able to contact him, his mother reported him as a runaway.

Due to the severity of the threats, Deputy Streltzoff's report was distributed to patrol which outlined the incident and provided the information necessary to take the 14-year-old male into custody.

On Saturday morning, December 21st, 2013, Sheriff's Deputy Phillip Pfeifer was contacted by the suspect's mother. She told Deputy Pfeifer her son had returned home and was asleep in his bedroom. Deputy Pfeifer took the suspect into custody without incident and booked him into juvenile for the felony charge of Harassment Threat To Kill.
