Threats made about Chesterfield Ruby Middle School
The Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office has placed extra deputies at Chesterfield Ruby Middle School today due to comments a student made about having a gun at the school.
According to Sheriff Jay Brooks, the student was identified and contained in the office within minutes and then was taken to the Department of Juvenile Justice last night.
“People have got to realize how serious these threats are. If you threaten to bomb a school, bring a gun or shoot up a school, it is very serious and will not be tolerated by the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office or the Chesterfield County School District,” said Brooks.
