A fourteen-year-old wielding a knife caused the Clay Central Everly school to be locked down for a time this morning. Clay County Sheriff Randy Krukow says four deputies were sent to the Everly site about 9:45 AM.
The student’s identified as Joshua Hagen from Everly. Authorities say he threatened a teacher with a hunting knife. Krukow says emergency procedures were followed and the student surrendered to a deputy without incident. Nobody was hurt.
The teen is charged with terrorism. The student was take to the Youth Emergency Services Center in Cherokee. Authorities think he planned the threat the night before, and acted alone. They’re still investigating, and say more charges could be filed.
