WABAUNSEE COUNTY— Law enforcement authorities and USD 330 officials are working together after alleged threats involving students at Mission Valley School this week.

On Tuesday the district alerted parents of a reported threat. It involved an individual making a threat to another student, according to Sheriff Rob Hoskins. The student was taken into custody and the family is working to get the student the attention they need, according to the sheriff.

On Monday, the school district contacted the sheriff's office with concerns about a threat that had been posted on social media. Deputies and the Kansas Highway Patrol responded. The incident was resolved quickly without any danger to the students, faculty, staff, or public. The sheriff’s office took an individual into custody from a residence in Wabaunsee County.

Following the two incidents, the Wabaunsee County Sheriff's Department held an assembly at the school to discuss with students about social media, verbal threats, and the severity and the consequence of such statements. They also reminded students that the school and law enforcement will not take such issues lightly.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City man has been charged with killing his girlfriend's 2-month-old son.

Twenty-eight-year-old Arlandez Drew was charged Tuesday with abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death. Charging documents say Jamarion Holland was rushed to a hospital in August.

Drew told police he had been watching Jamarion when the baby appeared to convulse after he was fed formula. Drew said he found a neighbor who performed CPR until an ambulance arrived. The baby died two days later. Drew told police he didn't hurt the child.

A medical examiner determined that the child's death was a homicide, caused by complications of head and neck trauma. A scan of the baby's brain showed bleeding in the brain and extreme swelling.

Bond is set at $75,000. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
