SEGUIN, Texas – A Seguin High School student was arrested Wednesday after making a terroristic threat about bringing a weapon to campus, school district officials confirmed.

The 19-year-old student was taken into custody at his home at about 11 p.m., Seguin ISD Chief Communications Officer Sean Hoffman said in a statement.

“Based upon the investigation, students and staff were not in danger at any time and no other students were associated with the comments made by the student,” Hoffman said.

The threat came one day after Tuesday’s school shooting in Uvalde that left 19 children and two teachers dead.

“The safety of our students and staff is our top priority,” Hoffman said. “Parents and students need to know that any threatening statements or comments, even if said in jest, will be taken seriously and investigated. Law enforcement will be contacted and appropriate disciplinary measures will be followed.”


Hoffman said there would be increased law enforcement in and around Seguin ISD schools through the last day of school on June 2.

“Students are encouraged to tell an adult if they hear or see something that is out of the ordinary or may pose a threat,” Hoffmann said. “Be vigilant.”
