MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Three students have been arrested on suspicion of making a threat to Marshfield High School.

An 18-year-old male and two 17-year-old boys were taken to the Wood County Jail Wednesday.

Authorities say a “specific threat” was found in a bathroom stall Tuesday leading school officials to sent students home early as a precaution.

Police are asking the Wood County district attorney to charge the students with making terroristic threats.

School district officials say the threatening messages were made to disrupt classes and close the school. Officials have not released details of the messages. Classes resumed Wednesday.
