Ohio schools report threats in wake of shooting

Updated:

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in northeast Ohio detained a student for allegedly posting a photo of himself on Facebook with a rifle as several schools investigated threats or inappropriate comments following a shooting earlier in the week that left three students dead.

The threats and school closings came after a gunman opened fire in the cafeteria at Chardon High School Monday, killing three students and seriously wounding two others.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports (http://bit.ly/yHZPoI) that Green High School evacuated classrooms late Tuesday morning after a bomb threat was found scribbled on a bathroom wall.

Police in Bath were investigating inappropriate comments by a Revere middle schooler, while a 17-year-old Crestwood High School student was arrested in Mantua for allegedly posing with an assault rifle and making threats in two Facebook postings.
