UPDATE: Former McKinley Student Who Made Threats Has Been Found

WAITE PARK – Waite Park police have released more information on the threats made toward the McKinley school.

The former student who made the threats has been found and interviewed.  Criminal charges are unlikley, but the case remains active.

The school was never in a lock-down, because classes at McKinley were cancelled and students were never on campus.  Classes will return to normal on Monday.

Waite Park police received information that a former student at the school had made threats to friends yesterday (Thursday) about bringing a gun to school and hurting people.

Classes at other sites in District 742 were held as normal.  Staff did report to McKinley and additional police officers were on the scene as a precaution.
