UPDATE (December 12, 11:42 a.m.):  Brad Pollitt, Assistant Superintendent of the Sedalia School District, addressed the recent rumors of kids possibly committing violent acts at Smith-Cotton High School in an interview this morning.  After a joint investigation with school officials, the student resource officer and the Pettis County Juvenile Office, no credible threats of violence were found.  The rumored acts were said to be surrounding what ancient Mayans claimed to be the end of the world.

According to a statement from the Pettis County Sheriff’s Office, the student resource officer and administrators at Smith-Cotton High School received information regarding a “possible act of school violence regarding firearms on school campus.”  After a joint investigation with school officials, the student resource officer and the Pettis County Juvenile Office, several juveniles were identified as suspects.  The case has been turned over to the Pettis County Juvenile Office for further action.

The Pettis County Sheriff’s Office has stated that “all necessary action has been taken in order to provide the safety and security of Smith-Cotton High School.”

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
