Brookfield police were called twice to Wisconsin Hills Middle School on March 29 to deal with students making violent threats. The first incident took place just before 9 a.m. and involved a 14-year-old boy threatening to kill another student during an aggressive and expletive-filled exchange.
The boy was cited for disorderly conduct and referred to juvenile court.
Later that day, at 1:47 p.m., police again came to the school after it was found a 12-year-old girl used another student's iPad to announce via Facebook she planned to blow up the school. The girl said she was frustrated that her friend was being bullied by another student.
She was not cited.
