On May 25, 2022, at approximately 12:00 p.m. Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to Doral Academy of Northern Nevada in south Reno on a report of a student making threats to others.

Deputies met with school staff and investigated the incident.  Deputies determined that no weapon was involved or brought onto the campus.  One student was taken into custody and booked into the Jan Evans Juvenile Justice Center on one count of making threats or conveying false information of terrorism.
