Shocking Nurse Murder Allegations

A former Washington school nurse who had been accused of sexually abusing multiple high school students was jailed again after allegedly threatening a mass shooting in retaliation for the allegations. 

Mark David Glenn, 51, is accused of raping a 15-year-old student at Todd Beamer High School in a car and sexually abusing two other students. The latter claimed he touched them in sexual ways when he worked as a nurse at the school, according to charging documents obtained by the Auburn Reporter.

He was charged with third-degree child rape, second-degree sexual misconduct with a minor and related charges back in early January. He pleaded not guilty and was released on bond. 

Just a month later, an anonymous tip was called in to police that Glenn still had access to firearms. If true, this violated his condition of release as he was supposed to surrender all his guns, according to the Auburn Reporter.

The caller told police that among the guns Glenn had access to, some of which were unregistered and illegal, — was modified AK-style assault weapon.

Glenn allegedly expressed rage over the charges he's facing during a February visit to a gun shop.

He said he felt "like a poked bear,” and was “going to start killing people ... and indiscriminately shoot people because nobody was innocent,” the charging documents state. He did not mention the high school as a target.

Glenn was arrested again on  Feb. 29. He is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.

The Federal Way Police Department, who arrested Glenn, did not immediately respond to Oxygen.com’s request for comment. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time.

Glenn was employed as a school nurse with Federal Way Public Schools from December 2018 through September 2019. Federal Way Public Schools has not immediately responded to Oxygen.com’s request for comment.
