On February 16, 2018, Domonick Roubique was accused, arrested, and expelled from East Ascension High School for making an “unspecified” threat to his classmates.
The case was dropped August 28, 2018.
Susan Gray, Roubique’s mother, said he was bullied and labeled for his looks.
“They basically stereotyped him because they compared him to shooters in other schools,” said Gray.
Gray said this is how some students at East Ascension High School described and treated Roubique when he attended that school.
Back track to February 9th, Gray said a teacher overheard two girls call her son “a school shooter” during lunch hour and confronted him but never confronted the two girls who accused Roubique as a school shooter.
She said she is starting to notice some of the teachers and students words aren’t adding up.
“February 16th my son was charged with terrorizing because he was accused of being a school shooter because he had information on his phone regarding the Florida shooting,” said Gray.
The Gonzales Police Department said they made an arrest after a threat was made at East Ascension High School but no weapon was found and the school was never put on lockdown.
Gray thought her son could return to school after his case was dismissed, but now Roubique is no longer allowed to attend any school in Ascension Parish.
Gray said if she can find an attorney to represent her and her son for this case; she will look into filing a lawsuit.
