(Sheridan, Wyo) An Instagram post Wednesday morning prompted an investigation by the Sheridan Police, who arrested a 16 year old male suspect.
Students called staff attention to the post who then alerted the School Resource Officer.
On Wednesday morning, parents of high school students received a message informing them of the investigation and assuring them that their children were safe. The majority of students were unaware of the threats.
As it turned out, the student who appeared to have made the post was a victim whose Instagram account had been hacked. Police soon discovered the actual suspect, who was transported to a juvenile detention center.
