PLYMOUTH – No arrests have been made in the social media threat incident, Plymouth police said Friday morning.
A student has been identified and he and the family have been cooperating with investigators, police said.
The incident is still under investigation.
Police presence was increased at all the schools in Plymouth Thursday after parents notified police and Superintendent of Schools Martin Semmel of an alleged threat to Eli Terry Jr. Middle School.
The alleged threat was a Snapchat picture of an automatic weapon with the words “pray for ETJMS.” ETJMS stands for Eli Terry Jr. Middle School made by a student at the school, Semmel told The Press Thursday.
Counselors were available at the schools Thursday for students who would like to discuss their feelings regarding safety and security, Semmel said in an email to parents Wednesday night notifying them of the threat.
Semmel said Thursday he requested continued police presence at the middle school for Friday, but not the other schools in the district. He said the Plymouth Police Department was on the smaller size and he was happy with any assistance he can get from them.
