ELKHART COUNTY — Students at Concord junior and senior high schools learned the hard way that shooting threats and bomb threats are not a joke or school prank.
Police were at Concord Junior High School Tuesday searching students, staff, buses, lockers and buildings.
"We searched peoples’ bags and made sure there were no weapons," said Sean Holmes, undersheriff with Elkhart County police.
Threats of violence at schools are usually not covered by WSBT News, because it can lead to copy-cat threats. However, WSBT News felt it was important to report the developments following the arrest and possible charges of two students, ages 14 and 15.
School staff discovered threatening notes and messages at two different schools, two times in one week.
"School shooting during the first or second hours" was written on a note found in the boy's bathroom At Concord Junior High School.
At Concord Senior High School, county police arrested a 15-year-old female who reportedly admitted to officers she wrote a bomb threat on a bathroom wall.
