COPLEY, Ohio - There was an increased police presence at the Copley-Orville football game Friday night after two Copley tenth graders allegedly posted threats against their school on Facebook.
"We're not expecting any problems at all," Copley-Fairlawn Superintendent Brian Poe said. "We're looking for a good football game tonight."
A student reported the threats to high school administrators Friday morning. According to police, the threats included comments about "killing students, detonating a bomb, and planting an explosive device at a school event."
Police said some of the comments were directed at certain band members.
"We live in a different day and age now and any threat is deemed extremely serious particularly when a threat is made against a high school in this matter," Poe said.
Neither school officials or police believe anyone was actually in danger. A firearm posted with the threat turned out to be a toy and police say the boys said they weren't really serious.
Police say both have been suspended and charged with delinquency by reason of making false alarm.
