Airline High School Student Arrested for Threatening to Blow Up the School
An Airline High School senior has been arrested on a charge of terrorizing.
Damian Moon, 18, of the 2400 block of Churchill Drive in Bossier City is accused of making death threats to other students and claiming he would blow up the school.
The Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Moon admitted to sheriff’s detectives that he made those statements. Moon was booked into Bossier Max on the terrorizing charge, and detectives plan to continue their investigation and execute search warrants on Moon’s cell phone and computer.
Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington credited swift action by the School Resource Officer for keeping students and the school safe. He said the SRO quickly investigated the matter and developed information that led to Moon’s arrest.
“Threats of this nature will be taken very seriously, and I encourage anyone who ever hears or knows of such threats to immediately contact authorities,” said Whittington.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, terrorizing carries a fine of not more than $15,000 and/or imprisonment with or without hard labor for not more than 15 years.
