No criminal charges will be filed against three sixth-grade Allegheny Valley girls who allegedly drafted a “kill list,” Springdale Borough police Chief Julio Medeiros said Friday.

The decision was made today after police presented the results of their investigation to Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.'s office for review on Thursday.

The girls still face possible disciplinary action from the Allegheny Valley School District.

Staff at Colfax Upper Elementary School contacted police Tuesday afternoon about two potential “kill lists” that had been found at the school. Police said no students or staff were ever in any danger; there was an increased police presence at Colfax this past week to reassure those affected that there was no viable threat.
