More details on incident at Canfield Middle School that resulted in the suspension of 2 students

Updated:

CANFIELD, Ohio – 21 News has obtained a police report on the incident at Canfield Middle School that led to two students being suspended.

A gold window punch, a 40 caliber bullet and about 22 feet of white nylon cord are part of the reasons a 13-year-old student was suspended from Canfield Middle School.

It was March 29th when one middle school student received some texts from a 13-year-old student.

According to police one text stated, "I'm going to kill ____." (the blank space named a particular student). The second text stated, "They all hate me."

According to students, who gave statements to police the following day, on Friday March 30th, during gym on the playground, the 13-year-old suspect allegedly pulled something out of a bag and tried to conceal it under his sleeve and began walking towards three boys who were on the swings.

The boys yelled that the suspect had a weapon and a gym teacher confronted the suspect and asked for the teen's backpack where he found the rope and bullet. The window punch was found on the ground.

The teen, who allegedly brought the items to school, stated he had been bullied by the three students throughout the week.

He said there had been incidents ranging from threatening and harassing text messages to verbal altercations and the throwing of items, like oranges, at each other.

But other witnesses say the 13-year-old was always talking about fighting other students with weapons.

That 13-year-old was suspended and charged in juvenile court with bringing a dangerous ordinance in a school safety zone.

The boy who was asked and brought the window punch to school has been charged with disorderly conduct and is in the Diversion Program.

Parents of students threatened say they want the teen to get help, but they don't want him back in the district.

21 News will continue to follow this developing story.
