Shawano Police investigating school threat

Posted:

SHAWANO (WBAY) -- Shawano Police will have extra patrols around schools on Tuesday while they investigate a threatening note about a shooting.

The Shawano School District says the note reads, "I am going to shoot up the school," but it doesn't mention a date or what school.

It's also not clear when the note was written. It was discovered by a person while moving picnic tables under a shelter in Memorial Park.

The Shawano School District says it's working with law enforcement to ensure students have a safe place. It posted on Facebook Monday night, "While we are unsure of the credibility of the note, we take all threats seriously. Student safety is of the utmost importance, and we will continue to do our due diligence to ensure the safety of our students."
