Student Accused Of Posting Hit List Is Expelled

CHISHOLM, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota high school student accused of posting a hit list on Facebook has been expelled.

Chisholm school district officials say the freshman included the names of 30 students, teachers and graduates on the list.

Superintendent James Varichak says the student’s return to school would have been a substantial disruption to the education process, so the school board agreed to expel him.

The Duluth News Tribune says the St. Louis County attorney is considering whether criminal charges are warranted.
