BSCO investigating a potential threat at Merritt Brown Middle School

The Bay County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating a potential threat at Merritt Brown Middle School.

Sharon Michalik, Director of Communications of Bay District Schools, told us in a statement that Wednesday afternoon three students reported overhearing another student make a threat. She said that deputies were immediately notified, and an investigation was launched.

Michalik went on to explain that no one can identify the student who allegedly made the threat, but deputies are continuing to look into the situation. As a precaution, additional deputies are on campus today.
