Raleigh Criminal Lawyer discusses the legal implications of threats by a local high school student
Last October, Kenneth Tyler Halker, a 17-year old student in Panther Creek High School in North Carolina was arrested for threatening fellow students. According to a report from WRAL, police brought in Halker after stating he would bring a gun to school. Later, reports claimed that Halker also took to social media indicating that he had a hit list and planned to return to school with a gun “fill bodies with bullets.” He also allegedly sent a text message to a classmate that said “you’re number five on my list”. During their investigation, police also found a Snapchat photo depicting two AR-15 assault rifles surrounded by piles of ammunition. A ballistic vest with multiple knives attached could also be seen on the image.
