‘It’s bad, it’s bad’: Proctor teens say students used item to assassinate teammate, video shared online – WCCO
Minneapolis (WCCO) – WCCO has revealed disturbing new details about why a Minnesota high school has canceled its football season.
School leaders and police in Proctor won’t go into details, but several students told WCCO about an attack in the locker room and video that went viral on social media.
“Everyone is so nervous. Phoenix Kosky told us.
With her parent’s permission, Kosky, a student at Proctor High School, spoke to us about the past two weeks.
The graduation year she was looking forward to after so many changes from the pandemic in the previous two years.
“It’s bad, it’s bad,” she said.
Now, there is no football season after what Kosky says she watched on social media.
Several students told us that two soccer players grabbed another player as a third, and an older teammate used an item to grab that player trapped on the floor.
“I think it was disgusting. ‘Really disgusting,’” said Tony Felbrun, another high school student.
The students told us that it took days for school officials to find out that the videos and photos are circulating among their classmates on Snapchat.
“I think the guy who did that should definitely be punished for what he did,” said Jace Grover, a senior.
While the public awaits the results of the police investigation, we are told that the students in the video have not been seen in class since school leaders found out.
There was also an offer of victim support.
“I think Proctor has a bunch of good kids, and it’s not fair to get everyone together about one’s actions,” Grover said.
“I don’t think they should have ruled out the football season for everyone, and give the rest of the kids a chance… they weren’t part of it,” Kosky said.
We checked again on Friday and the school board, the superintendent and the police still haven’t talked publicly about what happened. They all cite privacy laws for their decisions to remain silent.
We have also reached out to the St. Louis County District Attorney’s Office. A police spokesman said they were waiting for the results of the police investigation before deciding whether to file any possible criminal charges.
