McDonald police, school investigate internet posts by student

MCDONALD, Ohio (WYTV) – Police and school leaders in McDonald continue to investigate after an eighth grade student was removed from class Friday because of posts to the internet that were deemed threatening.

The student posted photos that glamorized school shootings, specifically the tragedy at Columbine High School.

Superintendent Ken Halbert told the Tribune Chronicle that the student will not be in class Monday.

A concerned parent called the high school Friday after seeing several posts on Instagram depicting the Columbine High School shooters and praising what they did. The student also tagged a handful of other students, which Halbert said could be seen as indirect threats.
