A 17-year-old Gibraltar student is in Door County Sheriff’s custody after making a violent threat against the school Thursday. The unidentified student posted the threat on Snapchat Wednesday evening when a student forwarded the image to a teacher. The Door County Sheriff’s Department was notified of the threat Thursday morning, forcing Gibraltar School buses away from the building and locking down students already present. Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says in this day of age, you have to take every threat seriously.
The school reopened shortly after 8 a.m. when the student was arrested by deputies at his home. The student will be charged with making terroristic threats.
