HOMEDALE — A Homedale High School student is in custody at the Canyon County Juvenile Detention Center in Caldwell today after his suspension for creating a "hit list" with 15 names, Homedale Police Chief Jeff Eidemiller said.

The male student was arrested Wednesday on at least 15 charges of threatening to do violence on school property, Eidemiller said. Eidemiller said a rumor Thursday that the student had escaped and was coming to the school “created chaos," with parents checking their children out of class.

“Today there was absolutely no threat to any student at Homedale High School,” Eidemiller said, because the student remains in custody.

The student, whose name has not been released, was suspended last week. Homedale police Friday began an investigation into the matter. They obtained information Wednesday that the student possibly had some intention of carrying out his alleged threats, Eidemiller said.
