Second school scare after threatening social media post

Michigan

The Stockbridge Police Department is investigating a threatening social media post allegedly made by a former student. At approximately 11:30 this morning the alleged suspect of a bomb threat in February posted a photo of a gun to the Stockbridge MI Area News & Info Facebook group.

Superintendent Karl Heidrich sent a letter to parents which read “we want to make you aware of concerning social media posts by the same adult individual who previously posted back in February, and this has caused additional concern with students, parents, and community. We have been working with police and have shared this information. We are continuing to monitor all of our buildings and all of our exterior doors will remain locked. Student safety continues to be our top priority.”

The incident in February said that Stockbridge is “fake” and “needs to be blown with everyone in it.”

Stockbridge Police arrested the suspect after the threat was discovered, but a spokesperson for the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office also says that they found “no criminal threat in the post.”

Police also say the prosecutor relayed to them, that how the threat was written was not specific enough to meet the requirements to charge him and that he didn’t say he was going to take action. The threat was also not sent to anyone directly, but posted on his personal Facebook story.

Updates will be available as more information becomes available.
