Students Threaten Texas High School

An online threat against a San Antonio high school virtually shut down the school, as less than 15% of the students showed up for classes today:
All but 400 of the 3,000 students at San Antonio Warren High School either didn't show up or walked out of class today due to threats against the school posted on a popular teen web site, 1200 WOAI news reported today.

"About mid morning today we were able to confirm that the web site 'MySpace-dot-com' allowed several students to post threatening messages on it's web site, messages threatening Warren High School," Pascual Gonzales of the Northside School District said. "This message said two boys were planning to show up at school with guns."

Gonzalez said extra police were on hand, and teachers and administrators were in a 'high state of anxiety.'
Police report that the students who posted the threats have already been identified and will be facing felony charges.
