An email sent to families in the school district from Supt. Donovan Rowe stated that the threat referred to a gun and mentioned “Huron Schools.”

Robbins said that there is no one in custody for making the threat at this point, but that the police department’s forensics unit and detective bureau are working the investigation.

“Investigators have not located any corroborating evidence to lend credibility to the threat, however, the investigation is ongoing and we are taking this seriously,” Robbins said.

Robbins said there will be extra police at each school district building on Friday.

Anyone with information related to the social media post should contact Huron Township Police at 734-753-4400.
