A 14-year-old freshman at Huron High School in New Boston was arrested Wednesday after a teacher allegedly overheard the student make a threat to “shoot up” the school.

At about 10:16 a.m., the teacher reported overhearing the student making a threat to “shoot up the school like Oxford” during a verbal altercation with another student.

The Huron Township Police Department school liaison officer was immediately notified, and the student was then taken into custody at 10:20 a.m.

Police said the student’s locker and belongings were searched and that no weapons were located.

The student’s parents were notified and the investigation is ongoing.

The case will be sent to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office for review and the possibility of charges filed.

Police say the teen will be held in custody pending that review.

“We will continue to have a zero-tolerance policy regarding threats of any kind to our schools and our students, period. Once again, we ask parents to have this discussion with your children at home tonight. We all want the same thing for our children, a safe and comfortable learning environment within our great school districts,” said Everette Robbins, Huron Township director of public safety.

“We have worked hard to have a strong visible presence in and around our schools in an effort to make parents and students feel safe. We will continue that presence,” he said.

    Did you ever find the girl that wrote on wall, in the girl’s bathroom that I heard can’t have doors on, or did that change? I always wanted to know how when they were taken off, how a they could be feeling safe when it was their time of month, and other girls would be in there? Seriously it’s a real problem. I’m being kind, because if I used proper terms, people would be freaking out. Probably over this, but, lol. Fix the problem! After you have had all your threats through the years, and they aren’t stopping, police this community!
