A Texas school district has canceled classes for the rest of the week due to a “credible threat of violence”. The Donna Independent School District will be shutting down all its schools after police reportedly found an AK-47 and a list of targeted students in a suspect’s home.

“We’ve received a credible threat of violence that is currently under investigation,” the district said in a statement on Thursday. “In light of the recent events and in an abundance of caution, we will be canceling school district-wide classes and staff will work from home. The safety and security of our students & staff is our first priority.”

A source told My RGV News that after the threat was reported to police, they found an AK-47 rifle and a list of targeted students in one of the suspect’s homes. Classes are scheduled to resume on Tuesday, May 31 after the Memorial Day holiday.

The Donna district is in southeast Texas, near the US-Mexico border. The announcement comes just days after an 18-year-old gunman stormed Robb Elementary school in Uvalde, killing 19 students and two teachers. The incident occurred just minutes after Ramos reportedly sent messages to a 15-year-old girl in Germany, who he befriended on a live-streaming platform, filling her in on his plans.

The Donna school district said classes would resume after the Memorial Day weekend. “In light of the recent events and in an abundance of caution, we will be canceling school district-wide classes and staff will work from home,” the message said. “The safety and security of our students & staff is our first priority.”

The note did not say which of the district’s seven facilities were thought to be targeted in the threat, which was reported to police who then alerted the district, according to media reports. It is also not clear how many students were named on the hit list.
