Fourteen-Year-Old West Middle School Student Writes ‘Kill List for Future’ is Suspended

Wednesday, December 4, Rochester Community Schools Incident Report

A Deputy who is assigned as a School Resource Officer (SRO) was contacted by a school administrator from West Middle School, which is in the 500 block of Old Perch Rd, regarding a threat made by one of their students. A 14-year-old student had written a “Kill List for Future” and was observed adding five (5) names of students while in the classroom. Several students witnessed the student making this list and notified their teacher. The teacher then witnessed the student adding new names to the list. The teacher cleared the classroom and notified school administrators. Detectives and the SRO responded to the school to speak with the student’s parents and to interview the student. The student admitted to making the list and stated that it was a way to vent the student’s frustration and feelings. The student denied the desire to follow through with the list and stated to Detectives that she wanted mental health assistance.

The student has been suspended by administrators from the Rochester School District and released to her parents. The student’s home was searched for any accessible weapons, with negative results. The students’ parents agreed that they would petition the hospital for a mental health evaluation. A juvenile petition will be forwarded to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
