Belle Chasse High School Student Arrested for Threatening to Shoot Up School


A Belle Chasse High School senior told police he was joking when he talked about shooting up the school on Friday and tying up a teacher. But the move landed him in jail, nonetheless. Leonard F. Jourdan III was arrested Monday by Plaquemines Parish deputies on Terrorizing charges after the 18-year-old high school senior's plans were overheard by a teacher and students during school hours, according to a news release from the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office.

 

Jourdan allegedly threatened to shoot up the school on Fri., Dec. 21, because, in accordance with the Mayan calendar, he believes the world is coming to an end on that day. He then allegedly said he was going to tie up a teacher and slit her wrists because it seems like she doesn't like him.

 

When Sheriff's deputies were first alerted to Jourdan's threats, school was not in session. So, it was determined that there was no immediate threat to the school. Police later caught up with Jourdan, who was interviewed with his parents present. During questioning, Jourdan said he made the threats in a joking manner, according to the news release.

 

Johnson is currently being held in Belle Chasse Lockup. No bond has been set.
