Owosso middle school student posts threat on social media

OWOSSO, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities are investigating another alleged threat made by a Mid-Michigan student. 

Officials said it was brought to their attention prior to school starting on Tuesday, May 16 that an Owosso Middle School student posted on social media that he or she was going to bring a gun to school.

Police immediately questioned the student but said no weapon was found. Officials said they took “appropriate action to ensure the safety of all students.”

“There was never a weapon on school property. The safety and security of our students is always our first priority,” officials said.

Because no weapon was found, police said the student was not arrested and the matter became a school disciplinary matter.

The school said they used their parent notification system to send an email to parents Tuesday, as well as post on social media about the alleged threat.

On Wednesday, a letter was also sent to parents at Northeast Middle School in Midland after a a “specific and potentially dangerous verbal threat” was allegedly made by a student. Read more about that situation here
