Woodville dad arrested for threatening to “shoot up” his own kid’s school
An Woodville man was arrested Wednesday after threatening to “shoot up” his own child’s school.
Deputies from the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office were called to Woodville Elementary School Wednesday regarding threats made by an adult parent, and detectives later discovered the threat had been made within the past month, but still believed it to be credible.
Based on that information, staff members immediately locked down the school. Subsequently, Detectives from the Sheriff’s Property Crimes Unit responded to the scene and took over the investigation.
During the investigation, the suspect was identified as Casey Crisler, a 37-year-old resident of Woodville. He was contacted in Porterville after agreeing to meet with detectives and was arrested without incident.
The suspect was later booked into custody at the Porterville Sheriff’s Substation. The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office has a zero tolerance for any threats of violence against schools.
Anyone with more information regarding this investigation is urged to contact Detective Scott O’neill or Sgt. Larry Camacho with the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office at 1-800-808-0488 or anonymously at tcso@ tipnow.com or by text or voicemail at #559-7254191.
