Horace Good Middle School- School Threat

Garden City Police Department

Yesterday at 3:30 PM, Officers of the Garden City Police Department were made aware of a possible threat towards Horace Good Middle School. The report was made from a student’s parent concerned about the threat.

Upon investigation, officers determined the threat was made by a student(13) two weeks
ago after he and another student were involved in a verbal altercation at the school. The
threat was not reported until today when another altercation occurred between the same
two students.

The GCPD will file an affidavit with the Finney County Attorney’s Office requesting
charges of Criminal Threat.

The Garden City Police Department and USD 457 encourage you to remind your child to
report any information about any school safety-related incidents to administrators/staff at
school and/or the Garden City Police Department.

*The person(s) involved has not yet been convicted of a crime, and are presumed innocent. The presumption of innocence shall continue until such time that the person(s) accused may be found guilty by a court of law.*
