UPDATE: Midview Middle School student in custody after bomb threat

Midview Middle School was evacuated Friday morning after a bomb threat was found on a bathroom door, the second such incident this week involving local schools.

A female student at the middle school was taken into custody on Friday after a threat was found written in a bathroom stall, according to Lorain County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Donald Barker.

At 10:45 a.m. Friday morning, a threat saying, “I’m going to blow up the school today,” was found written on a stall door in the girls’ bathroom, according to Midview Schools Superintendent Scott Goggin.

The staff evacuated the building, and the Lorain County Sheriff’s Department conducted a sweep. The Sheriff’s Department couldn’t find a bomb or other evidence of potential harm to the school and students were brought back to class at about noon, Goggin said.

Shortly after the incident, the Lorain County Sheriff’s Department took into custody a female student who they believe was connected to the threat, according to Barker and Goggin.

This is the second threat this week. On Thursday, Sheffield Middle School was evacuated after a bomb threat was found written on a wall. A student has been suspended and charged.
