SALEM LAKES — The Kenosha Sheriff’s Department is investigating threatening words reportedly found on the bathroom stall of a southwestern Kenosha County high school on Monday.
A school resource officer at Wilmot Union High School, 11112 308th Ave., was made aware of writing on a men's bathroom stall that allegedly said “shoot up the school,” according to a Kenosha County Sheriff's Department release issued Tuesday afternoon.
The release said it is believed the message was written sometime over the past weekend, possibly during a basketball game.
"Wilmot High School and the Sheriff’s Department would like to stress that at this time, this incident is not being viewed as a credible threat," the release stated. "The investigation is moving quickly. Wilmot High School is being vigilant, but not taking any extra security measures."
The Kenosha Sheriff’s Department is working closely with school administration and a "vigorous" investigation is taking place, the release stated.
The school was to remain in session during the investigation, sheriff's officials said.
