No charges to be filed against boy over alleged school threats

The district attorney will not charge a 13-year-old Rifle boy who reportedly threatened to blow up Rifle Middle School.

He was arrested by Rifle police April 30 after fellow students reported that he threatened to blow up the school and kill teachers.

District Attorney Mac Myers said the boy’s alleged threat didn’t target a certain person, and it would have been tough to prove the case.

The boy was released after appearing in Garfield Juvenile Court last week.
