New Jersey mom credited with preventing school shooting to be in Lawrenceburg parade
LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – A New Jersey mom, credited with preventing a school shooting, will ride in Lawrenceburg’s Christmas parade, according to The Anderson News.
Koeberle Bull contacted Kentucky State Police after Dylan Jarrell allegedly sent her harassing Facebook messages. Police say the tip helped prevent a potential school attack.
Koeberle Bull said she had no idea her tip would lead to someone that police said had a gun, more than 200 rounds of ammunition and a “detailed plan of attack.” In emailed comments, she said she was “just protecting my babies.” She said the suspect, Dylan Jarrell, sent racially offensive comments aimed at her children, who are biracial.
Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rick Sanders says the police intervention saved lives. Sanders said last week the suspect “had it in his mind to go to schools and create havoc.” Jarrell pleaded not guilty to terroristic threatening and harassing communications charges.
Bull, her children and the KSP trooper who arrested Jarrell have since appeared on Ellen.
Now, according to The Anderson News, Bull will ride in the city of Lawrenceburg’s Christmas parade, scheduled for December 1.
“I can’t wait to finally be able to meet all of the people I’ve been talking to on Facebook,” Bull told the paper.
