Sheboygan Police investigating threat associated with the SASD. Now believed to not be credible. Suspect not believed to be local.

On 5/15/22 at about 10:00 pm the Sheboygan Police became aware of a possible threat to a middle school student.   Our officers and detectives immediately began investigating these threats, during which time we also contacted officials from the Sheboygan Area School District. The SASD, based on information from our department, decided to continue with school as normal while the investigation continued.  Investigators spoke with several students that were mentioned in the messages and determined that they are not responsible for the threatening messages. Based on our investigation the SPD believes that the person responsible for the messages created a fake account with personal information of somebody who is not responsible for the threatening content.  We do not believe that the threat is credible and continue to investigate the source of the threats, believed to be from someone in another state.  As always, please pay particular attention to social media, especially when used by youth, and report suspicious or threatening messages.  It is also asked that social media content, when containing negative or threatening content, not be shared due to providing unnecessary attention to individuals who want that attention.
