Threat at Rochester High under investigation

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday, April 25, announced it was investigating a threat discovered by a teacher that was written inside a bathroom at a Rochester Hills school that day.

The sheriff's office on Thursday, April 26, said a school liaison officer assigned to Rochester High School was advised by a teacher on Wednesday morning to respond to the men's bathroom in reference to a threat made against the school. The officer responded to the men's bathroom located in the D hallway and observed a threat that had been written on a wall inside a bathroom stall.

Authorities didn't specify the nature of the threat.

The school principal was notified. Officers and school personnel reviewed video in the D hallway in an attempt to identify the responsible party.

The officer assisted the principal and his staff with conducting preliminary interviews. A detective also responded to the school to assist with the investigation.

The sheriff's office said it threat wasn't deemed as credible, but the incident remains under investigation.

School remained open on Thursday.
