Investigators Say YouTube Video of School Shooting is No ThreatSubmitted: 01/11/2013
Story By Lyndsey Stemm


CRANDON - A disturbing YouTube video upset people throughout the Northwoods so much it launched an investigation of Crandon High School students. Today investigators told us there is no threat.

"It was allegedly filmed at Crandon High School and portrayed the shooting of a student, or multiple students. It was immediately forwarded to me for my review. We executed a search warrant based on that video of one of the individuals homes," says Forest County District Attorney Chuck Simono.

Police, the District Attorney's office and the Superintendent worked together to interview witnesses, search houses and the school.

"I can advise the public that there is no threat to the students. What this turned out to be is really bad, bad judgment. It was one individual who was trying to make a film and they did it in extremely poor taste," says Simono.

The video makers are minors, so District Attorney Chuck Simono can't share exactly how they'll be punished. But he did say they'll be punished by both the school and county.
