A 14-year-old Mundelein High School student was charged with a felony after police say he made a list of names of people he wanted to hurt.

Mundelein Police Chief Eric Guenther said that the 14-year-old student was charged with felony disorderly conduct.

Guenther said that the student made a list of other student names in a notebook who he wanted to harm. Guenther added that the list of names was made as part of a bad joke and that it was not a credible threat.

Police and school administrators were notified about the student after another student was talking with her friends.

The girl told her friends that the 14-year-old student put her name on his list and a teacher overheard it.

Police identified the student in question and interviewed him. They also recovered the list of names and interviewed those students.

This is the fifth incident this year that has put Mundelein High School in the news. In August, a student was charged with threat to a school building/person, which is a felony, after posting a bomb threat on Instagram.

In January, a student was charged after bringing a BB gun to school and pulling it out in a bathroom, triggering a soft lockdown.

In February, a student was disciplined for wearing earrings that spelled out the n-word. The next day, a threat posted on social media and a photo of a shotgun shell in one of the school’s bathrooms sparked fear in the community.

The next day after that, two students were arrested for posting a photo of what appeared to be a gun with the caption, “Mundelein ain’t ready for this,” on social media.
