"I am going to shoot you"
Teen charged with threatening to shoot another student
A Niceville High School student was arrested yesterday after threatening to shoot another student. Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies charged the 15 year old with threatening to use a firearm in a violent manner.
He and another student became embroiled in an argument at school that stemmed from an off campus incident at the victim’s home.
Yesterday, after the victim confronted the defendant, the defendant yelled, “I am going to shoot you.
Several witnesses stated they heard the statement.
Now, I don’t normally include headlines like this in the Daily Rundown but this comes on the heels of the “It’s No Joke” campaign aimed at addressing school threats made by students in Florida.
The “It’s No Joke” campaign aims to dissuade youth from making school threats, because doing so can lead to being arrested and charged with a felony. Just as this Niceville student was charged with a felony.
Clothing drive for victims of Hurricane Michael
Today’s Boutique Partners with “Save The Closet” to host clothing drive for victims of Hurricane Michael
In memory of the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Michael, Today’s Boutique in Destin has partnered with Save the Closet to host a community clothing drive throughout the month of October.
The community is encouraged to clean out their closets and donate any new or gently used clothing, shoes and accessories for women, men and children by dropping them off at Today’s Boutique.
All items will be donated directly to locals that were affected by Hurricane Michael through Save The Closet, a local non-profit organization that features a community closet within a bus that travels into the most affected areas.
Their mission is to provide victims the normalcy and pleasure of a shopping experience to replenish their lost wardrobe, completely free of charge.
For anyone that brings in donations, Today’s Boutique will offer a $10 gift card as a thank you. Items may be dropped off any time during Today’s Boutique’s business hours, which are 10:00 am – 6:30 pm Monday through Saturday and 12:00 to 5:00 pm on Sunday.
