Two Oxford High School students are involved in an investigation regarding a potential school threat made on April 26. 

Police say there was a social media post created by a 17-year-old student referencing the Columbine High School shooting. Another student, 18, replied "Don't come to school tomorrow."

The threat was forwarded across social media to several students, who indicated they were afraid to come to school. The post was eventually forwarded to a school administrator, who notified the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

Detectives and the School Liaison Officer were able to identify both students from the original social media post. One of the two students was located at the school and the second student was located at his residence.

Both students were interviewed by detectives and it was determined that neither of them were found to be in possession of any weapons.

Police say detectives are continuing with the investigation, but the threat does not appear to be credible. The case will be reviewed by the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office.
