LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A middle school student in Mount Washington, Ky., is facing criminal charges after he made a "hit list" of other students.

Eric Farris, the attorney for Bullitt County Schools, says staff at Eastside Middle School learned of the list Friday morning.

They called police, who charged the student as a juvenile.

Farris could not say why the student created the list, however, there was no imminent or direct threat to those students named on the list.

The school has been in contact with their parents. The student has been suspended and could be expelled.
