Clown Threats in Etowah County

In Etowah County, investigators believe a 9th grader from Gadsden City High School is behind a vague clown threat against Rainbow Middle School. The threat was posted on the "What's Happening in Rainbow City" Facebook page. According to Rainbow City Police Chief Jonathan Horton, the post was a copycat of posts from weeks ago targeting Escambia County and Jacksonville City Schools. Horton says the original post has been deleted and now it is up to juvenile probation to determine what steps of discipline are in order. He says the teenager could be charged with terroristic threat or harassment.
