Arrest made in threatening calls placed to Marshall schools

Marshall Schools

MARSHALL, Texas _ An arrest has been made by the Marshall ISD Police Department in connection to the threatening phone calls that were placed last week.

After the phone calls were placed to both Marshall High School and the district Administration Building, lockdowns were enforced at all campus buildings and schools both on Thursday and Friday.

The Marshall News Messenger reports Quincy Earl McCollister, 17, was arrested Wednesday on two counts of making a False Alarm or Report, Emergency, which is punishable as a state jail felony.

School district police led the investigation, with assistance from the Marshall Police Department. School police officers were stationed at Marshall High school during Thursday’s lockdown, with Marshall officers covering other schools and district facilities over the course of the two days.

"I want to commend our local law enforcement for their help and cooperation throughout this entire process," Superintendent Jerry Gibson said.
