TAYLOR, Texas (KXAN) — A former student of Taylor ISD was arrested Wednesday for allegedly making threating comments about Taylor High School, less than a year after being arrested for the same offense.
Devant Davis-Brooks, 17, was arrested after making a threat to THS students and staff around 5 a.m. during an online video game, according to a release from the district. The former student reportedly told other players of the online game that he was “going to shoot up Taylor High School tomorrow.”
A participant of the online game happened to be an off-duty Fort Worth police officer, who then reported the threat to the Taylor Police Department.
The TBD immediately responded to Davis-Brooks’ residence and detained him while they conducted an investigation. The department arrested Davis-Brooks and charged him with a third degree felony terroristic threat offense.
Davis-Brooks, a recent graduate of THS, was previously arrested in August 2018 for making similar terroristic threats while a student.
