McGhee’s father said he’s relieved Reid is in custody, but that he is still trying to come to grips with his son’s death.

“Even right now, I just don't believe it. My wife, she's just, we’re all taking it, she’s taking it extra hard,” he said.

McGhee said he knew some of his son’s friends, but never heard of Reid. He doesn't understand why anyone would want to harm his son.

“They don’t value life or nobody else’s life, didn't value my son’s life,” he said. “Anytime someone that young shoots somebody that young, it’s senseless.”

A Hamilton High School student was arrested on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018, for allegedly making threats on social media.

A Hamilton High School student charged Friday for allegedly making threats on social media to do harm at school was arraigned today in Hamilton Municipal Court.

Cortlin Barrett, 19, is charged with aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor. His attorney David Washington entered not guilty pleas on his behalf.

FIRST REPORT: Student told parents about alleged Hamilton social media threat that led to arrest

Barrett is free on bond. Judge Dan Gattermeyer set several conditions of that bond, ordering that he have no weapons, stay 500 feet away from all school properties and to stay off of social media.

He is scheduled to be back on court next week for a pre-trial hearing

Sgt. Brian Robinson said that police were alerted by the parents of a female student who is in the city’s school system but attends a different school.

“She goes to another school and she remembered that message we have been getting out, ‘If you see something, say something,’ and she did,” Robinson said. “She said something to her parents, and they called us right away and we started the investigation.”

The investigation determined that Barrett was solely responsible for making the social media threat, and he was charged.

“There were rumors about multiple students making these threats, but when it came down to it after interviewing people, is that we arrested Barrett for making the threat,” Robinson said.
