Threat at Triton School resolved

Staff Writer

As of Thursday morning, the suspect behind the possible threat to the students and faculty at Triton School Corporation (TSC) is in police custody.
The administration was alerted to a possible threat at 3:45 p.m. on Wednesday Feb. 28 after school was released. The threat was of an image of a pistol with threatening language involving the phrase “Bourbon/Triton be ready” followed by a series of obscene language. The image was shared on social media sites including Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook. Three minutes later at 3:48 p.m., Triton High School Principal Bob Ross was made aware of the image and contacted TSC administration.
At 3:15 a.m. there was an admission of guilt and the suspect is now in police custody.
In a Facebook post Thursday morning, TSC stated that it would continue to have law enforcement present at the schools that day to ensure all measures are being taken to keep the safety of the students intact.
