Police say they have made several arrests regarding Monday’s social media threat at Fond du Lac High School.

According to police, a 16-year-old male in Arkansas has been identified as an alleged source of the threat, and three additional juvenile males have also been arrested in connection to the incident. Police say all three of those students attend Fond du Lac High School.

Investigators believe the students had been playing an online X-Box Live game when they created a plan to send out the threat. Investigators state the suspects say the Snapchat post was meant as a joke, with intentions of causing the school to be canceled Monday.
