Children involve police in 911 hoax calls

On Thursday, December 3, 2015 at approximately 2:40 p.m., Beaumont police dispatchers received a 911 call of “someone shooting at Pathways Learning Center."  First officers arrived at 2:47 p.m. The caller called a second time at 2:52 p.m. saying "they are still shooting." Officers began to enter the school and search room to room and hallway to hallway. The caller made two more calls and said they were passing “Target.” At that time, it was determined that the caller was on a school bus. Dispatchers contacted the bus dispatchers and advised the bus driver to stop the bus.

Beaumont officers located the bus and the callers. Three individuals were involved; an 11, 15, 17 year old. A report was made for “Abuse of 911 call”. The callers made a total of 4 calls.

A total of 15 Beaumont police officers responded to this hoax, along with 1 BISD officer.
