Suspect in GHS bomb threat detained in Texas
Gainesville Police Department was notified today that a suspect in the Gainesville High School bomb threat has been arrested in Austin, Texas. The bomb threat was emailed Sunday to GPD. GPD Spokeswoman Corporal Angelina Valuri says the arrest was made yesterday in Austin.
Because the investigation is ongoing, the Austin Police Department is not releasing specific details at this time. Valuri says the email GPD received contained a name and address to a fictious person in Austin which helped lead APD officials to the suspect.
The same email also warned that a shooting would take place at Gainesville High School today, athough no incidents have been reported and extra police were assigned to the area.
