Mom derails potential mass school shooting after suspect threatened her children
Koeberle Bull received a dangerous and racist message from a complete stranger about her children, and she decided to speak up about it. This decision helped derail a potential mass school shooting and saved hundreds of lives.
The concerned mother woke up to a threatening Facebook message from a complete stranger recently, who called her a "wannabe" black woman. The stranger then sent death threats regarding her three biracial children, and this is what prompted her to speak up about it.
The New Jersey citizen quickly contacted the police and told them about the message she received from someone who was just three states away. During an interview with NBC's Nightly News, she described the incident by saying:
“He basically used the N-word a lot. He hoped that my children would hang. Something in the back of my mind was like, ‘Do not let this go.’”
It turns out that the police confirmed that the phone call made by Bull tipped off police to a similar investigation which may have ultimately prevented a school shooting.
The man who sent the message turned out to be 20-year-old Dylan Jarrell, who was arrested last week by Kentucky police due to the tip. He was arrested while backing out of his driveway while armed with a gun, a Kevlar vest, and more than 200 rounds of ammunition. Authorities also confirmed that he had "detailed plans of attack" to carry out mass shootings in two Kentucky school districts.
When the FBI investigated the probable shooter's house, it was seen that his internet browsing history all included searches on how to successfully conduct a school shooting and more.
Jarrell pleaded not guilty to charges of making terroristic threats and harassing communications.
Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rick Sanders said at a news conference that this investigation has saved hundreds of lives, and was a close call.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that as a result of this investigation we saved lives. This young man had it in his mind to go to schools and create havoc. He had the tools necessary, the intent necessary, and the only thing that stood between him and evil is law enforcement."
