A Mount Pleasant Police Department car sits outside Walmart on Dec. 12.

Officers from the Mount Pleasant Police Department (MPPD) responded to a written gun threat found at Mount Pleasant High School this morning. 

Police conducted a complete security check of the school, and as an extra precaution brought in bomb-sniffing dogs. There were no weapons or bombs found during these searches.

The school was already in enhanced secure mode when officers arrived according to a city press release.

While at the school, police spoke with the student who initially discovered and reported the threat and found inconsistencies in their statement. That same student later admitted to writing the gun threats on Dec. 7 and Dec. 9.

The threats in Mount Pleasant follow a string of copy-cat threats that began after the Nov. 30 shooting in Oxford. Similar incidents have been reported in Traverse City, Metro Detriot, and more.

This story will be updated as it develops.
