FDL Man On Trial For Threat To Shoot Up The High School

A jury trial is underway for a 17-year-old Fond du Lac man suspected of threatening to shoot up the Fond du Lac High School last April. According to the criminal complaint a female student heard Carlos Martinez make the threat near the door of a classroom at the end of a class. The threat apparently left the student shaken. Later Martinez was confronted about the threat in the high school principal’s office with a school resource officer present. Martinez told them that people take things too seriously and that we “Make a big deal out of everything nowadays.” Martinez is charged with making terrorist threats and disorderly conduct. The trial is scheduled through Thursday.
