DEVELOPING: Wausau PD investigating threat to middle school

WAUSAU (WAOW) — The Wausau Police Department said they have been made aware of, and are investigating a threat of a possible shooting tomorrow at John Muir Middle School in Wausau.

A letter from the school district was sent out to parents, according to one parent with kids at the school.

The letter states:

“The Wausau School Districts wants you to know that this morning, May 27, the Wausau Police Department began investigating a social media rumor that was reported to the district. The content reported is limited to a Snapchat post in which the author claimed to have heard the following rumor: “I heard John mirror is getting shot up on Tuesday.”

But the letter said that “since the rumor has not been substantiated nor has it been deemed credible at this time, classes will be held tomorrow at John Muir.”
