At about 10:13 AM Wednesday morning, March 22, officers with the Charles City police department responded to the Charles City Middle School for an incident. Officers responded and investigated along side school staff, talking with several people. As a result of that incident and the ensuing investigation, on that date, a 15-year-old male student was removed from school and turned over to juvenile authorities.

After further investigation, today, a 14-year-old female and a 14-year-old male were taken into custody and remanded to juvenile authorties.

All three individuals have been charged with Threat of Terrorism – a class D felony.
