Valley high school student detained for creating alleged ‘hit list’

PHOENIX — A Valley high school student has been detained after school officials found an alleged hit list Thursday.

Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump said officers questioned a 16-year-old male student at Shadow Mountain High School after a concerned parent reported the list to school officials.

Crump said the student has no discipline or criminal history.

The parent was notified about the list from their child, who is also a student at the school. The list allegedly named about two dozen students and teachers with graphic descriptions of murder.

Crump said the murder descriptions varied from practical to outlandish, but are all being taken seriously.

“We wont know (his exact intentions) until we talk to him, but there is no indication that he has tried to carry out anything that was on the list,” he said.

The student has not been charged with any crime.
