The Three Rivers Police Department responded Wednesday morning to Three Rivers High School after being made aware of a threatening message posted on a social-media website.
Officers said the message was found to be left by a 17-year-old student at the high school. Though the exact content of the message was not indicated in a department press release, it did state that the student made references to use of a weapon at school.
The student was interviewed at school and he confirmed that the statement he made online was exaggerated. The student also stated that he posted the comment due to having anxiety and trouble adjusting to the new school year, according to police.
The incident remains under investigation and could be forwarded to the county prosecutor’s office for a potential charge of malicious use of a computer.
