Cops: North Georgia high school student had 'kill' list

DALTON, Ga. — A north Georgia high school student was arrested and charged with terroristic threats and acts earlier this month after authorities said they discovered a "kill" list he created in a notebook.

Included on the list were the names of students, teachers and a school administrator at Coahulla Creek High School in Dalton, Ga.

The student is a juvenile, and his name was not released. An incident report from the Whitfield County Sheriff’s Office states another student alerted an adult at the school after the student threatened to bring a gun to school and shoot people. When a school administrator confronted the student on Oct. 16 and searched his backpack, she discovered a yellow notebook in which he had listed several names under the heading "Menschen zu toten/Ziele," officials said.

"I asked (the student) what that meant and he would not respond," Officer G.L. Teems wrote in the incident report."“I typed it into Google and it translated to English from German, 'People to kill.'"

According to the report, under the heading were the names of five students, four teachers and the administrator who confronted him.

Teems wrote in the report that he asked the student who he was threatening.

“He stated, ‘People who don’t think highly of me,’” Teems wrote. “ ... I asked (him) why he wrote those, and he stated that he was angry and people have mistreated him and have done him wrong.”

Whitfield County Schools officials declined to say whether or how they disciplined the student, citing federal privacy laws.

The police report states the student said his father had guns at home, that he knew how to use them and that he had plans and blueprints to build an improvised explosive device.
