Two 12-year-old boys are being held in custody after they allegedly threatened to "shoot up" a middle school in northwestern Wisconsin.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said it was made aware of the threats to Northwestern Middle School in Poplar late Tuesday evening.
The two boys were allegedly overheard making "detailed, specific plans to 'shoot up' the school," the sheriff's office said, adding that they were also discussing "targeting a specific individual."
The bots were taken into secure custody on Wednesday, with the investigation continuing.
"The Sheriff's Office believes there is no further imminent threat to any of the Maple School District schools stemming from this incident," the sheriff's office said, adding that there will be extra patrols on Thursday and Friday.
