Police: Harper Woods student threatened school shooting

The Detroit News

A Chandler Park Academy School District student has been charged with threatening to shoot classmates this week, Harper Woods authorities announced Friday.

The city's Department of Public Safety learned about the threat Wednesday night, officials said in a statement.

The release did not specify whether the threat involved the elementary, middle or high school part of the academy district. It also did not list the student's age but described him as a juvenile.

Detectives arrested the youth early Thursday in Detroit before he arrived at school, police said. He was not armed and investigators found no firearms at his home, officials reported.

The student was held in the Wayne County juvenile detention facility and charged with making a terrorist threat, police said.

It was unclear if he faced other discipline. Chandler Park Academy administrators did not immediately respond to a request for comment on his status Friday.
