On today's WTJX NewsFeed, police responded to a bomb threat earlier today at the St. Croix Educational Complex High School and Career and Technical Educational Center. Officers arrested 23-year-old Quasheem Christian of St. Croix for the murder of Chandler “Frenchie” Heath, a St. Thomas man killed in January. Senators vote to allow the Commissioner of Education to hire School Health Technicians for every public school in the Territory. This move aims to address the shortage of medical professionals on school campuses. Listen to these stories and more.
