Girl, 12, deemed responsible for Oregon Coast shooting threat

NORTH BEND (AP) — Classes have resumed in a Coos County school district after a threatened shooting canceled them for a day.

The Coos Bay World reports that authorities determined that a 12-year-old girl wrote the threat in a bathroom at North Bend Middle School. The disturbing note led district officials to cancel school Wednesday.

Police said the culprit was discovered through interviews, a handwriting comparison and surveillance video from a hallway.

The department says it’s working with the district attorney and mental health counselors to determine the next step.
