School shooting video lands juvenile in jail


A Forest County juvenile was arrested after police say he made a threatening video depicting students being shot.

According to Forest County Sheriff John Dennee, officers received reports about the YouTube video over the weekend. Dennee said the video showed students being shot in front of the Crandon School.

A male juvenile was arrested and taken to the Forest County Jail. Officers searched his house but found no weapons or other evidence, Dennee said. No further evidence was found at the school either.

"Our investigation indicates what while the video was made in very poor judgment, there appears to be no indication of danger to the students, school personnel, or general public," Dennee said in a news release.

The juvenile was expected to make an appearance in court Monday.
