Mother questions how school district handled threatening text messages

- On Friday, May 4, Warnesha Crawford got this disturbing text from an unknown sender.

"I got a gun an i'ma shoot that school up and warnesha gone be the first one I KILL then I'll shoot everyone else I got the plan and everything sorted out I even have someone who gone help me too," it read.

"All of my friends say she follows them," Crawford said. "It's like basically planning in her mind who she is after."

The day before the text, Crawford says the student who allegedly sent it to her pushed her and school officials are aware of it.

They also know about the threatening text.

"It was like maybe a week later," said Tiffany Wallace. That's when Wallace, Crawford's mother says she heard back from the districts police department.

Five days before that, she says she filed a report with the FBI.

"You were supposed to notify the parents with a letter," Wallace said. "The superintendent was not aware of it. She just found out yesterday that this had occurred over 12 days ago."

"I speak to the police chief, the case was not even on his desk yet. He had to find the investigator on the case and update me about it," said Community activist Quanell X.

We heard the district police chief tell Quanell X on Wednesday they took the cell phone from the girl Crawford says sent the text.

"Why did you just call this girl in to be interviewed and just yesterday went to the girl's house and get her phone," Quanell X said. "Where's the concern?"

Crawford says the girl making the threats is still attending class.

A spokesman for Aldine ISD says the investigation into the threatening texts is ongoing and they are trying to determine where the texts originated.
