HORTONVILLE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) Two east central Wisconsin high school students have been suspended, and they face possible criminal charges for drafting a so-called "kill list."
Hortonville High School was put under a "soft lockdown" on Tuesday, in which students and staffers had to stay in their classrooms while officials searched for the list. It was found Tuesday afternoon at the home of one of the girls suspected of writing it. Media reports said over 60 names were on the list, but police officials said it did not appear to be credible. That's because it did not have many details of what the girls might have been planning to do. No students or staff members were said to be in imminent danger.
Hortonville school officials say the girls will get school discipline -- and police will make a recommendation on charges when they finish investigating the matter.
