Monroeville police are investigating what appears to be a hit list of students discovered Thursday in a Gateway middle schooler's bedroom.
In a letter to parents Thursday, Principal Anthony Aquilio said a parent informed school administrators and counselors that his or her son, who was not named, "developed a list of students that he wanted to harm." The parent found the list in the child's bedroom while he was at school, Mr. Aquilio said.
Monroeville police Chief Doug Cole and administrators pulled the student from class and searched and detained him. He was eventually removed from school, the letter said.
Students on the list met with administrators, and their parents also were notified, the principal wrote.
Gateway Middle School is operating on a normal schedule today.
Monroeville police weren't immediately available today for comment.
