UPDATE: Fort Stockton Fifth Grader Threatens 10-Year-Old Boy, Mom Says School Should Take Action

Ft. Stockton, TX (Big 2 News) - "They're like, 'hey this kid said he could beat you up'," Konner Orndorff said.
UPDATE: The Fort Stockton Chief of Police released a statement Monday, in response to this parents' claim that her son was bullied. 

It reads in part:
"Recently a reported case of bullying that occurred at the Intermediate school was investigated by the Fort Stockton Police Department.  Investigators from the F.S.P.D. Special Investigation Division assisted the school district with filing charges against an individual who made threats towards another student from that campus.  The F.S.P.D. was notified by the school district as soon as they were made aware of these threats.  At no time was a gun ever displayed or brought onto this campus during this incident."

Ft. Stockton, TX (Big 2 News) - "They're like, 'hey this kid said he could beat you up'," Konner Orndorff said.

After 10-year-old Konner told his mom about a threat he received at Fort Stockton Intermediate School, she didn't know what to think.

"When he got in the car I could tell something was wrong. His face was just white," said Krystal Stevens, Konner's mom.

According to Konner, two boys he didn't know came up to him and started mocking him. One kid made a threat.

"He said well I'm from the streets and you're from the county aren't ya?" Konner said.

After Stevens learned about the incident, she contacted the principal about this fifth grader bully.

"He pretty much in not so many words said this isn't the first time that he's done something like this. He's always pushing people around."

According to Stevens, it was this threat that worried her.

"He said you better watch your back, I can pull a gun on you."

Stevens received this voice mail from the school's principal in regards to the incident.

"We are keeping him away from your son. There shouldn't be any contact whatsoever. "

Stevens also spoke to the Fort Stockton ISD assistant superintendent who still left her feeling uneasy.

"Where you're from they may suspend kids for things like this but we don't We try to keep them in school and punish them some other way.

But it's not just Konner that she is worried about.

She's also worried about the safety of other students on the school campus.

"In all the tragedies that we've seen on TV throughout the years of school shootings, I would have thought this student would have been removed from the campus completely," Stevens said.

"If something like that were to happen, suddenly it's a big deal but once it happens like, 'oh kids will be kids,' and then what if it really does happen?" Konner said.
