2 Brownsboro ISD students arrested after verbal threats

BROWNSBORO, TX (KLTV) -

Two more Brownsboro Independent School District students have been arrested following an investigation into verbal threats.

The school district released a statement on the investigation Friday morning:

"Students notified the Brownsboro High School administration of additional verbal threats being made this morning by two fellow students. Thanks to the extraordinary collaborative effort between the BHS administration and the Brownsboro ISD Police Department, the matter was investigated and resulted in the arrest of the two students."

The district said via social media that at the conclusion of the investigation, the district found "no weapons or evidence of a so-called 'hit list' present on campus."

Thursday, a student was arrested at Brownsboro High School for making "continuous verbal threats."

According to Superintendent Tommy Hunter, the student was arrested on campus after he continuously made verbal threats to others at the school. In that incident, Hunter said no weapons were brought on campus. 

Of the Friday arrests, Hunter said, "I want to personally applaud the Brownsboro HS administrators and our police department for responding to this concern effectively and efficiently. With everyone working together, we were able to accomplish our number one priority: keeping our students safe."
