Police have arrested a man who allegedly went into a classroom at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic School in Kingstown and threatened to shoot one of his daughter’s 11-year-old female Grade 5 classmates on Wednesday.

The man is said to have issued the threat after his daughter and her classmate reportedly had an altercation.

iWitness News was reliably informed that the man went into the school and took a photograph of the girl who had reportedly had a fight with his daughter.

He then told the child that he was going for his gun and would shoot and kill her anywhere he met her, a well-placed source told iWitness News.

iWitness News understands that a senior police officer was dispatched to the school, and detectives from the Criminal Investigation Department are investigating.

On Wednesday, police issued a statement refuting reports on social media about a man who had entered the school “brandishing a firearm”.

“There was an incident earlier today at the said school and the person of interest is cooperating with the police. The students and members of staff are safe,” the Police Public Relations Department said in a terse statement.

iWitness News understands that the child against whom the threat was made is a close relative of a police officer.

  1. Police protect their own so he will be found guilty of threatening an individual but when one of the judiciary shoots another in their foot…
    verdict – not guilty ( due to police screw up)

  2. If the NDP campaign on the rising crime situation, they will win the election. But wait, the Wurl Bas will probably call election when it is convenient for them to do so. The Wurl bas toilet boss has the place in a mess with his lying and thieving tactics.

    In my day as a teacher @ St Mary’s, GATES @ back & front of the school were locked & individual teachers were assigned monitoring responsibilities @ morning, lunch & afternoon. Thirty fove years have elapsed, there is hike in Crime @ Violence & there is a paid Security guard. I did the Parent enter or did he & where was the guard? I am puzzled…If as Parents we display such ignorance, how do we expect our youths to behave?
