At approximately 2:10 p.m. on 10-23-18 the School Resource Officer and School Administration at Wilmot High School became aware of a handwritten threat made in a women’s bathroom on the campus located at 11112 308th Avenue.

The investigation revealed that the threat “school shooting tomorrow” had been written on a stall in the bathroom the same day. It was determined that school would be open on 10-24-18 with the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department staffing additional personnel at the school for the entire school day. Sheriff David Beth, the department, and Wilmot High School Administration take all threats or potential threats very seriously to ensure the safety of all students and staff.

An extensive investigation into this threat resulted in a 14-year-old female student who confessed to the threat (unknown motive).

One count of Terrorist Threats is being pursued on the juvenile.
