An 19-year-old who in 2017 threatened to “shoot up” Wildwood Middle High School has been sentenced to probation and community service.
Jacquez Kyvion Hill on Jan. 30, 2017 wrote on the men’s bathroom wall, “I’m going to shoot up the school on February 8th” and encouraged those reading his message to “be ready.”
The threat on the bathroom wall was painted over.
The following day, he allegedly wrote on the same bathroom wall, “on the 8th big shootout.”
In both messages, Hill referenced the KKK and used racial slurs.
Wildwood police relied on a handwriting analysis from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, after obtaining a school work assignment turned in by Hill. The writing on the bathroom wall appeared to match the assignment Hill submitted in class.
In a recorded interview, after he was read his Miranda Warning, Hill admitted he had written the threats on the men’s bathroom wall at the school.
This occurred shortly after two Villages Charter School students were implicated in a foiled school shooting plot.
This past week in Sumter County Court, Hill was placed on probation for six months and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.
