November 15, 2018

A Havre High School student was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of shouting “School shooting’ while the school was on lockdown due to threats discovered Monday.

Dyllan Murray, 18, was being held without bond this morning in the Hill County Detention Center on pending charges of assault by coercion, intimidation or threat and disorderly conduct.

Havre Police Chief Gabe Matosich said this morning that officers responded to a call form the high school about 12:30 Wednesday afternoon that a student was being disruptive.

The officers investigated and found that an 18-year-old was accused of shouting “School shooting” while in the high school library, and continued to be disruptive after he was escorted to the principal’s office, Matosich said.

The school was closed Tuesday and was under complete lockdown Wednesday due to the specific nature of writing discovered in the upstairs boys’ bathroom Monday evening.

Matosich said, as far as the police know, the shout by Murray and the writing discovered Monday are not directly connected.

He said Havre police are continuing to investigate the writing discovered Monday and he hopes to have more information by Friday.

He said the police will turn over the information on the accusations made against Murray to the Hill County Attorney’s Office and it will be up to that office to decide what charges to file.
