Clown threat aimed at WHS thwarted

Staff Writer

Just before 4 p.m. Sunday, the Wapakoneta Police Department received a call in reference to an Instagram posting seemingly making a threat toward Wapakoneta High School.

The post had a picture of clowns, as well as a knife and a skull, Police Chief Russ Hunlock said. The post made mention of WHS and this upcoming week.

The police department has started the investigation and at this time has a suspect. The 15-year-old male  has been banned from the school until the matter can be looked into further.
