Onaway Area Community Schools put into “shelter in place” after threat surfaces

Onaway Area Community Schools made a post on Facebook in the afternoon on the threat situation.

Onaway — The Federal Bureau of Investigation contacted Presque Isle Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday to warn of a potential threat at Onaway Area Community Schools.

School administration placed the schools into a “shelter in place.” As precaution, other area schools were notified and secured based on protocol.  Law enforcement and administration searched and secured the Onaway buildings as well as the students.

During a search, authorities located a suspect for the threat. After questioning the juvenile female and her father, law enforcement placed the juvenile female in custody. The investigation is still ongoing. There is no current threat to area schools.
