VICKSBURG, Mich. (WOOD) — A juvenile has been arrested in connection to an online threat made against Vicksburg Community Schools Tuesday, according to the Vicksburg Police Department.

The district closed Tuesday due to the threat.

Vicksburg’s assistant superintendent said they are working with law enforcement to investigate the threat.

It comes after several schools in Kalamazoo County were closed last week after online threats were posted.

Thursday, 17-year-old Kalamazoo girl was arrested in connection to the social media threat made to Portage Northern High School last week.

Also last week, a 16-year-old and 14-year-old boy faced misdemeanor charges after allegedly posting threats to Kalamazoo-area schools.
