Bay City, Michigan, a town about 80 miles north of Oxford, has closed all schools today.
‘The threat originated via social media, and appears to be a viral ‘challenge’ for students to post,’ a district statement said.
This comes after a 17-year-old in the city of Flint posted a video to social media in the style of a rap song making threats of doing something ‘like Oxford’.
The student has been charged as a juvenile with one count of false threat of terrorism and one count of using a computer to commit a crime.
