Brownsville student accused of making hit list



BROWNSVILLE, Pa. - A Brownsville Middle School student is accused of making a hit list. 

Parents of students on the list said they were contacted by police.

“It’s a little startling to hear your daughter was on a hit list,” said parent Aaron Mann.

Mann told Channel 11’s Cara Sapida he was watching television with his daughter when police showed up at his door.

One student wrote on Facebook:

“The cops from the school just came by my house and told me that my name was on the list and they have to inform all parents of the kids' names that are on the list.  He said that as of now, I'm not in any danger.”

Administrators at the district wouldn’t comment on the length of the list or other details.

“The matter is being handled through the proper channels by our staff.  Obviously the faculty is always aware and when potential problems come up, as in this case, they act accordingly,” a school spokesperson said.

Channel 11 talked to parents about the list.

“My son is in 7th grade there, and I'm upset about this. I believe everyone, and I mean everyone that has a child at that school should have been informed. It doesn't matter whose name was on the list,” said a parent.

“I’m glad I took my daughter out and home schooled her,” said Patty Massie.

The school solicitor said the student is being disciplined but didn’t provide details of the punishment.
