A 13-year-old girl was arrested Friday morning in Killeen after threatening a middle school principal and then assaulting a campus police officer.

The seventh grader at Palo Alto Middle School at 2301 West Elms Rd. was charged with terroristic threat, assault on a public servant and resisting arrest.

“The student made a verbal threat against the life of the school’s principal, then assaulted a Killeen ISD officer,” district spokesman Terry Abbott said.

She was taken to the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center.
