LA PINE, OR -- A pre-teen girl was arrested this week, after reportedly posting a video to the social media site Snapchat where she appears to encourage a shooting at La Pine Middle School. Deschutes County Sheriff's Sergeant William Bailey says the investigation began Tuesday evening when deputies were told about the video, "Parents and students at La Pine schools were concerned about this social media post that was spreading through the community. And so, deputies began investigating, and took into custody a 12-year-old female on a count of Disorderly Conduct in the first degree."


Sgt. Bailey says school safety is a top priority, and threatening violence at a school should lead to serious consequences, "Anyone that shares or says anything that first, jeopardizes the safety of the students, but then it brings alarm to the students and faculty, is enough to bring a charge." He tells KBND News, "In today's day and age, threatening violence at a school, there has to be some action and consequence for that because it scares a lot of people. we want parents to be able to send their kids to school and know they're going to be okay. We have school resource deputies in the schools, particularly in La Pine, and then we'll also have an increased presence any time we feel that the students or faculty need to feel safe."

An increased law enforcement presence was seen at area schools Wednesday. Sgt. Bailey says the investigation is ongoing and asks that anyone with information in the case or knows of other potential threats, contacts the Sheriff's Office.
