Boy accused of threatening to kill his 6th grader in Miami

MIAMI – A boy is said to have threatened to kill 17 sixth-grade students after he was the victim of bullying at a religious private school in Miami.

The 12-year-old, who is also a Boy Scout, is a student at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic School, an Archdiocese of Miami school located near the East Little Havana and Brickell neighborhoods.

“Arrangements have been made for him to attend a new school,” attorney Greg Gonzalez said while representing the boy before District Judge Scott M. Bernstein during a children’s court hearing Wednesday on Zoom.

Miami police officers arrested the boy Friday night. Detectives reported that he was at his father’s house playing on his Xbox. The game console has internet access, so he used it to post the threats, which other players saw and reported, police said.

“That has been investigated. There’s nothing here, so it was a surprise that he was arrested,” Gonzalez said in court.


Bernstein disagreed and ordered a psychological evaluation. He also decided to place the boy under house arrest with an electronic monitor and ordered him to stay away from using the internet and using social media and his Xbox.
