Redwater, TX – Police investigated after a “hit list” was discovered containing names of Redwater High School students as well as faculty.

Late Wednesday evening a “hit list” began circulating on popular social network Twitter, quickly going viral.

Though the list did not indicate any plans for violence, the name of the list was alarming for students, parents, faculty and authorities.

According to Superintendent Dr. Kathy Allen, “this was a list of 50 names of staff and students, following with the two authors’ descriptive opinion of those people,” she went on to say that the list “used very crude language and it was very hurtful [to students and staff] but it did not cause worry about any physical threat of violence to anyone mentioned on the list.”

School policy is to advise the family of any student on the list, according to Allen, all parents of the students included on the list were notified on Wednesday when the list became public. According to a parent whose child was on the list, he was contacted by Redwater’s Principle Rhonda Roberts who informed him of the list.
