12-9-19 fdl high school student arrested for threatening to “shoot up school”

A 17 year old Fond du Lac High School student has been arrested for allegedly posting on social media threats to “shoot up the school.”   Police say an initial potential threat that began circulating on social media early Thursday evening was determined to not be credible.   However, later that evening police and school officials became aware of an additional separate threat incident made on social media that stemmed from an earlier altercation that occurred between some students in the commons area as school was being dismissed for the day.  The threats made in this incident by the 17-year-old included a photo of a hand gun and a reference to “shooting up the school.”  As a result a 17-year-old male was arrested for making Terroristic Threats and was taken into custody and is currently being held in the Fond du Lac County Jail.
