Juvenile Charged Over Threatening Letter in Norwalk

Norwalk police said they have arrested a high school student after discovering she created a "hit list" of 29 other students.

Authorities disclosed Thursday that the girl was charged Monday with 29 counts of misdemeanor breach of peace. Her name was not released because of juvenile offender laws.

Lt. Terrence Blake said Norwalk police began investigating Saturday after someone found a letter the girl wrote in January that listed the 29 other Norwalk High School students and threatened to harm them.

Blake said it was a "veiled" threat and authorities don't believe the girl had access to weapons. He said it's not clear why she was upset at other students.

School officials said they contacted parents of students mentioned in the letter Sunday night.
