Fayette County Student Makes Shooting Threat on Facebook

By Will Doolin, WJBD News

The principal of a Fayette County high school says a student posted a shooting threat on Facebook.  KSDK-TV of St. Louis is reporting that Brownstown High School received information about a shooting threat posted on Facebook.  Principal Mike Shackelford says the student was brought to the school office for questioning and it was determined he was not armed.   

The Fayette County Sheriff's Department took the student into custody for investigation.  The school was not locked down or evacuated.  

Brownstown Community Unit District Superintendent Adam Bussard sent a note home to parents Friday stating what happened at the school.  Due to student privacy laws and because of an ongoing law enforcement investigation, the student's identity and other details are not being released at this time.
