A 17-year-old Pulaski High School student has been arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot a police officer, a K-9, and people attending an upcoming graduation ceremony at the school, according to Pulaski Police Chief Mark Hendzel.

Raven Jaworski of Sobieski was charged in Brown County Court on Friday with a felony charge of making terrorist threats.

Jaworski allegedly made the statements about plans for "shooting up the school" to fellow classmates at a lunch table in Pulaski High School, the criminal complaint said.

He told classmates he planned to hide guns under the stage and open fire during the graduation ceremony in 2018, according to the criminal complaint.

When interviewed my the school resource officer, Jaworski initially denied saying anything, then told him his statements had been a joke, court documents said.

Hendzel credits the swift action of the Pulaski School District and his officers to get Jaworski behind bars. He says they decided not to cancel classes yesterday, because they knew where Jaworski was and students were not in any danger. 

Jaworski will be back in court on April 12th.
