The following morning, December 3, a second juvenile suspect was arrested and charged with threatening to commit violence with a firearm or explosive against a school.

On the evening of December 4, after a “thorough investigation”, investigators were able to locate a third suspect whose threats on social media are believed to have reached hundreds of people, according to police. This suspect has been detained and charged by the Oakland County District Attorney’s Office for threatening to commit violence with a firearm or explosive against a school.
