Ottawa police investigate school threat

Ottawa police and school officials said Thursday that an apparent threat at Shepherd Middle School was not credible.

On April 13, police, through the school resource officer, along with Ottawa Elementary School district staff members, began to investigate the apparent threat. Police and staff determined the threat was not credible, according to a press release issued Thursday.

Subsequent to the investigation, one juvenile from Ottawa was referred to La Salle County juvenile probation Wednesday for one count of disorderly conduct.

No further details were provided.
