Detroit — Two people were taken into custody after a group of adults threatened students Wednesday afternoon at Detroit Public School District’s East English Village Preparatory Academy.
The principal of the academy sent notice to parents after several of the adults threatened the students after dismissal around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday. Several people got out of their car at the school’s front entrance and “approached students in an extremely menacing way,” according to district spokesman Steve Wasko.
“Campus police officers and the security guard reacted immediately to ensure that students and staff remained safe,” Wasko said in a statement.
The district police department and the Detroit Police Department are working to investigate and no students or staff were injured. District police will have a presence at the school for the rest of the week.
