Middle School Student Charged in Planned Attack Document Creation

Fort Worth, Texas – A third student in a far north Fort Worth middle school is facing charges in connection with creating and editing an online document detailing an alleged planned attack against students and staff, according to officials from the Northwest Independent School District.

Following a tip from a parent on May 1, school officials discovered a disturbing document outlining plans to attack Wilson Middle School, listing 25 students and seven staff members as targets. Two students were initially arrested, with pending felony charges, and a third student has now also been charged with a felony terroristic threat.

In response to the incident, the Northwest ISD Discipline Management Plan outlines potential consequences for students charged with felony terroristic threats, including placement in the District Alternative Education Program for 45 to 60 days. The presence of armed security guards and a Fort Worth Police Department school resource officer has been increased at Wilson Middle School for the remainder of the school year.

The school district will now conduct threat assessment reviews before allowing a student involved in terroristic threats to return to campus. Counselors will be available to support students at Wilson, and absences due to safety concerns will be excused.

Officials emphasize the importance of reporting any suspicious activity to campus administrators or school staff, as well as utilizing the district’s tip line for anonymous concerns. Northwest ISD serves students not only in far north Fort Worth but also in 13 surrounding communities.

Ensuring the safety and security of students, staff, and parents is a top priority for Wilson Middle School and the Northwest Independent School District in light of this concerning incident. By implementing strict protocols and increasing security measures, they aim to provide a safe environment for learning and prevent future threats from materializing.
