Ohio schools report threats in wake of shooting

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northeast Ohio detained a student for allegedly posting a photo of himself on Facebook with a rifle as several schools investigated threats or inappropriate comments following a shooting earlier in the week that left three students dead.

The threats and school closings came after a gunman opened fire in the cafeteria at Chardon High School Monday, killing three students and seriously wounding two others.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that Green High School evacuated classrooms late Tuesday morning after a bomb threat was found scribbled on a bathroom wall.

Police in Bath were investigating inappropriate comments by a Revere middle schooler, while a 17-year-old Crestwood High School student was arrested in Mantua for allegedly posing with an assault rifle and making threats in two Facebook postings.
