An Alabama mayor says a high school principal failed to tell police about a student’s “death notebook” that was found last year and disclosed earlier this month only after the same student threatened to shoot a classmate. Trussville Mayor Buddy Choat told a news conference a “total lack of communication” had led to a situation that rattled some parents.

The mayor says the notebook should have been disclosed earlier.
