BEAVER DAM, Wis.— Three teens have been interviewed by police as part of an investigation of an emailed threat that was sent to Beaver Dam High School’s assistant principal Friday.
The emailed threat forced school officials to close all public schools in the Beaver Dam Unified School District Friday. The threats mentioned that something would happen around fifth period that would harm both students and staff.
Beaver Dam Police Chief John Kreuziger told TODAY’S TMJ4 that two 16-year-olds from Beaver Dam and one 15-year-old from Las Vegas are the teens involved in the investigation. Chief Kreuziger says the teens all met online through the video chat website, Skype.
Police say the teens have been released to their parents since they were “extremely cooperative” and promised to keep their children away from the school.
There are about 3,400 students at 10 schools in the Beaver Dam Unified School District. Police say they will increase patrols at all schools on Monday.
Chief Kreuziger says he wants the teens charged with "disorderly conduct, at the bare minimum." However, he says the charges are not expected to come today.
