MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Mishawaka Police have made an arrest in the case that led to Mishawaka High School to close to in-person classes on Thursday.

Police said they learned a threat was made on a YouTube chat during the School City of Mishawaka school board meeting on Wednesday.

They obtained a search warrant for Google about the social media post to shoot up the school, reports said.

The search warrant showed the account was for a 15-year-old in La Porte County.

Mishawaka Police spoke with the juvenile with a parent present.

The juvenile is facing a charge of intimidation in juvenile court.

Mishawaka schools will be open on Friday to in-person classes because the student who made the threat did not have the intent or plan to carry out the threat, according to the district.
