UPDATE: Restraining order filed in connection to Nekoosa threat

Posted:
NEKOOSA (WAOW) -

The Nekoosa School District administrator has filed a retraining order against a student who police say threatened to bring a gun to school.

Steven Dzieglewicz, 18, is facing a disorderly conduct charge in Wood County court in connection to the threat.

According to the criminal complaint, Nekoosa Police say Dzieglewicz used Facebook to tell another student that he had a gun in the school.

In the restraining order request, the district feels Dzieglewicz is a "major threat to the safety" of Nekoosa students.

The school was locked down on Monday, March 11 and all students were dismissed. Police say no weapon was found.

Court records show Dzieglewicz told the other student, "I told you I have a way to kill everyone," and "I wanna end it all."

Officers say when Dzieglewicz was interviewed, he said he did not have a weapon and did not bring one to school.

Dzieglewicz faces up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted of the disorderly conduct charge.

The Wood County Jail says Dzieglewicz is not in jail at this time on that charge. A message left at Dzieglewicz's home was not immediately returned.

A hearing for the restraining order is scheduled for next month.
