La Porte Teen in Trouble for School Threat

(Mishawaka, IN) - A La Porte County teenager allegedly caused a school shutdown in St. Joseph County with a threat of violence.  According to police, a threat to shoot up the school was made on Youtube Chat during a Mishawaka School Board meeting on Wednesday night.


Thursday was supposed to be the first day in a long time that all Mishawaka students were to return to in-person learning.  Instead, the high school went to e-learning Thursday as a precaution.  Police traced the threatening comment back to a 15-year-old from La Porte County.

That juvenile was interviewed by Mishawaka police detectives and arrested.  No other details were released.


According to Mishawaka Schools Superintendent Wayne Baker, authorities do not believe the juvenile had any intent or plans to act on the threat.
