Recommended Posts

PANAMA CITY — The Bay County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday announced another arrest involving the threat of violence at an area school.

Dalton Capps, 14, a student at Bay High School, was arrested after another student reported him making threats that he intended to shoot other students, according to a BCSO report. A fellow Bay High student reportedly told the school resource deputy she was concerned about Capps and some statements he had made that he planned to come to the school and shoot other students. Capps also drew his finger across his throat indicating he was going to cut the throats of other students or shoot them, the student said.

BCSO criminal investigators responded to the school Wednesday and interviewed numerous other students who reporedtly had witnesses the same behavior from Capps.


BCSO reported Capps admitted to saying he was going to shoot up the school, using his hand to symbolize a gun and “shooting” at students and using his finger as a “knife” to indicate he would slash student’s throats. Capps stated he felt it was funny and was only joking.

A consent search of his residence resulted in no access to firearms, BCSO reported. Capps was arrested and charged with making a false report concerning use of a firearm in a concerning manner, a second-degree felony.

On Tuesday, a 17-year-old Rosenwald High School student was arrested on the same charge after students reported him making threats of harm.
