17-year-old Arrested for Making Terrorist Threats on Social Media


A 17-year-old from Fond du Lac has been arrested for making threats on social media directed towards Fond du Lac High School.

Police and officials with the Fond du Lac School District became aware of a potential threat toward the High School that had been posted in the early evening hours of Thursday, after classes had been dismissed for the day. Investigators say that specific threat was found not to be credible.

A news release says that later on Thursday evening, Police and school officials were made aware of another, separate threat made on social media. Investigators found that the threats in this incident stemmed from an altercation between students in the commons as school was being dismissed for the day.

The threats reportedly made by the 17-year-old male included a picture of a gun and a reference to “shooting up the school.” The teen was arrested for making Terroristic Threats and is currently being held in the Fond du Lac County Jail awaiting formal charges.

Police say in the wake of officer-involved shootings in Wisconsin this week that a number of possible school shooting threats have been circulating throughout northeast Wisconsin. They are asking parents and guardians to talk with their kids about the seriousness of making such threats, and to encourage them to report any threatening messages to school staff or to the police.
