"I'm feeling pretty happy with what our fellow students came to do and they told teachers who should of known", said one student.

Another threat on a stall said, "Blowing up this (expletive) 11-17-17". The student with the gun was arrested around 8:15 a.m.

Evergreen Park police responded to the school, 9901 S. Kedzie Ave., just before 2:30 p.m., but learned the student was not at the school after making contact with one of his family members, Capt. Peter Donovan said.

"They even put on the announcements that if you're threatening the school in any way as a prank or something serious, there will be serious consequences", said student Stephanie Nguyen.


The girl, whose name has not been released, was taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center. This is the second time this school year that the high school has been placed on lockdown due to security threats.

The next day, Lake County authorities arrested a teen after he posted a photo of a fake gun on social media saying he was going to go to Lake Minneola and "finish what was never started".

According to a spokesperson with the Sheriff's Office, deputies responded in reference to the text message which read, "There are guys in the bathrooms and hallways with guns in Windermere High School". Deputies searched the school but did not find anything suspicious. "This is NO laughing matter".

Many said they're happy it turned out to be a hoax.
