Student threatens people at learning center

Cameron_JessupThe Bossier Sheriff's Office arrested a 17-year-old student at the Bossier Learning Center Thursday on drug charges and threatening to shoot people at the school.

Cameron S. Jessup of Haughton was arrested on charges of terrorizing, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

K-9 teams from the Bossier Sheriff's Office and Bossier City Police Department conducted a routine sniff for drugs this morning at the Bossier Learning Center, Bossier High School, Airline High School and Parkway High School

While at the Bossier Learning Center, a deputy was approached by a fearful teacher who said Jessup told her "This school makes me want to shoot everyone." When questioned by the deputy, Jessup admitted to making the statement.

At the same time, a K-9 team alerted on a truck in the parking lot of the Bossier Learning Center that belonged to Jessup, where deputies found marijuana in the driver's side floorboard and passenger's glove box of his truck.

Jessup was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and booked; his bond is pending.

"We take very seriously any threats of violence," said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington. "We will not tolerate anyone threatening our schools or cause fear of safety in our businesses, homes or churches."
