MUSKEGON, Mich. — Authorities say an air soft gun was found at Orchard View High School the day after a shooting threat.
The Muskegon County Prosecutor’s Office says that the threat was found written on a counter Thursday in a boy’s bathroom.
On Friday, authorities received additional information that a student at the school had a weapon. According to a release, the air gun was found in one of the school’s bathrooms during a search.
Muskegon County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Tim Maat says the student who allegedly brought the gun to school has been charged with a felony charge of carrying a weapon with unlawful intent and a misdemeanor charge of possessing a weapon on school property.
