TRUSSVILLE, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama mayor says a high school principal failed to tell police about a student’s “death notebook” that was found last year and disclosed earlier this month only after the same student threatened to shoot a classmate.

Trussville Mayor Buddy Choat told a news conference a “total lack of communication” had led to a situation that rattled some parents.

Police began an investigation earlier this month after a student threatened to shoot someone with a bow and arrow.

During the probe, police learned the same student had compiled a “death notebook” that contained the names of about three dozen students.

The mayor says the notebook should have been disclosed earlier.
