GRAY, LA (WGNO) — A student at H. L. Bourgeois High School accused of using a mobile phone app to simulate shooting his classmates was booked and jailed in Terrebonne Parish.
The app is called “The Real Strike” and simulates a first person shooter game, except the battleground is real life.
Wolfe office says a 15-year-old was arrested after posting a video on YouTube using the Real Strike app to shoot other kids at school, “He said it was a result of him being frustrated and tired of being bullied. He said that he had no intentions of hurting anybody. We have to take all threats seriously and we have no way of knowing that without investigating and getting to the bottom of it.”
He says the student was arrested for terrorizing and interference of the operation of a school.
Parents told investigators their son does not have access to any fire arms.
The YouTube video was taken down.
