Shawano police investigate second threat to schools


SHAWANO (WBAY) -- Shawano Police are investigating another threatening message made that references a school shooting.

In a post on both the Shawano Police Department and Shawano Schools Facebook pages, police responded to the area of Sturgeon Park for an anonymous report of a non-specific threat to schools at about 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Police say a message stamped in the snow spelled out "I go shoot up school."

Police and the school district are unsure of the credibility of the message, but are taking the threat seriously.

Shawano police say they will continue to do foot patrols in the schools and maintain their presence outside the schools.

This is the second report of a threat to schools in recent weeks in the Shawano area.

Shawano police are continuing to investigate.
