Police are questioning a Stevenson High School student they believe is responsible for an ominous post on Facebook.
The male student, a senior, who wrote the Facebook post has been identified. Police and school officials say they don't believe the student intended to hurt anybody. But for many Stevenson students and parents who read it, it was scary.
In the long Facebook post on the page Stevenson compliments, the student appears sad and disgruntled with his classmates.
But it was this line at the bottom that really frightened parents and students: "Don't worry, I will give you all something to remember before this year is over."
"Just the last line really stuck with me. I thought something bad would happen at school or to one of our peers," said Steveson senior Amanda Komp.
"Everybody was nervous. Someone would open the door and everybody would kind of jump," Stevenson senior Mallory Troy said.
Two to three dozen parents called the school with questions or to pull their children out.
"I thought to myself, 'What do i tell her to do if someone starts shooting? 'Run, hide, get home from school. Just come home,'" said Amanda's mother Jan Komp.
As of Monday afternoon, Lincolnshire police told WGN the student said the last line was actually about him and another student, not intended to threaten the entire school. The school is looking into that part and working to resolve any problems.
Some parents, like Jan Komp, were concerned they never got an email about the Facebook post, which was discovered Sunday. She learned from her daughter Amanda Monday morning, and then checked out the school's website.
"We did not feel that the threat was imminent and we didn't see the rational for needlessly raising the anxiety levels of parents," said Jim Conrey with Stevenson High School
While police and school officials investigated, extra officers were patrolling Stevenson, just in case.
