Suspect arrested for Kalamazoo ‘creepy clown’ threat

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – One person is now in custody for making a threat against Kalamazoo schools as a “creepy clown.”

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says that they have arrested a 17-year-old Loy Norrix High School student for making a social media threat.  This person was taken into custody at about 6:00am Friday.  Investigators say that they believe the suspect was working alone.

FOX 17 News received a screenshot of an anonymous Facebook post Thursday evening, saying “shooting up kc or norrix tomorrow, maybe both.” The account behind the post has since been removed.

Police have expanded their presence throughout the district Friday.
