Plattsmouth Community Schools says the shooting threat investigation has been completed and one student has been removed from school.  Classes will resume for students on Thursday.


Tuesday night, the district and authorities were alerted that a threat was made against the Plattsmouth Middle School on social media.  Authorities deemed it a credible threat and classes were canceled for all schools.


Since the investigation is complete, the findings have been turned over to the Cass County Attorney's Office.


Neither the district nor authorities have released much detail as to who was behind the threat or if anyone else was involved.


The district says all regularly scheduled activities will continue Wednesday, and there will be a greater law enforcement presence when classes resume on Thursday.
