Threat to Muskego High School phoned in on a dare from Louisiana

On Monday, May 22, at approximately 7:00 AM, the Muskego Police Department was contacted by the Muskego Norway School District and made aware of a threat to Muskego High School which was phoned into the high school switch board. Officers were immediately dispatched to the high school to investigate this incident and to provide additional security for students.

The person making the threat has been identified as a 16-year-old teen living in Louisiana. Investigators from the Muskego Police Department identified the suspect through phone records, and the suspect admitted to placing the call on a dare to Louisiana investigators.

The suspect has no connection to Muskego or Muskego High School, and had no means of carrying out his threat. This investigation will continue, with a charging decision coming later.
