Atascocita Student Arrested After Taking Saw Blade To School, Having Hit List

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office has filed a charge of possession of a prohibited weapon, a third degree felony.

A Humble ISD student was arrested this week after he took an 8-inch saw blade to Atascocita Middle School. An investigation also found he had a hit list with the names of some students.

Karl Koehler, the school’s principal, sent a letter to parents on Wednesday saying the Humble ISD Police Department conducted an investigation and gathered information for the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. According to the letter, the saw the student took to school is the type of tool used to cut tree branches.

“All students are safe. Our school administration is having personal conversations with the parents of students whose names were listed,” the letter read.
