Schools in the county seat of St. Joseph County, Michigan have been closed for two days after a report of a threat.

Our partner station WWMT reports Centreville Public Schools were closed Thursday and Friday because the St. Joseph County (Michgan) Sheriff’s Office was investigating a gun threat.

The Sheriff’s Office confirmed to WSBT 22 they received a tip about the threat on Wednesday. The Sheriff’s Office said the department takes all threats seriously, and the department was wrapping up an investigation on Friday.

The office also issued a news release Friday morning.

“Two students were identified and interviewed. The Sheriff’s Office is in the process of conducting additional interviews and reviewing evidence that has been collected,” the release said.

An investigator with the department told WSBT 22 the schools could reopen Monday.
