Anxious moments in Streator after an online threat

Posted by wlpo on October 30, 2015

A threat of violence 300 miles away still had students and staff on edge at Streator High School.

According to a message on the Streator High School Facebook page, a student in Indiana threatened violence to his school online and because he has social media contacts in Streator and other schools in La Salle County, fears were ramped up of something happening locally. The Streator Police Department quickly got involved and determined there was no local threat.

Police presence was ramped up at Streator High Friday because of the threat investigation. They’ve also been testing radio equipment within the high school.
