Shreveport Student Arrested for Arson at Her School
A Woodlawn High School student has been arrested for allegedly setting a fire in the girls' restroom this afternoon.
17-year-old Kentria McCall was booked into Caddo Correctional Center on a charge of aggravated arson by Caddo Sheriff's Corporal Shannon Cornelius, who's the School Resource Officer at Woodlawn.
The Caddo Sheriff's Office says McCall allegedly lit some toilet paper on fire and then threw it into a trash can, which then caught the bathroom stall on fire. That, in turn, caused significant damage to the girls' restroom.
Corporal Cornelius says the fire activated the school's fire alarm system and about 100 students were evacuated.
