AUBURNDALE, Wis (WSAU) The Wood County sheriffs department investigated a report that a student at Auburndale High School was planning to take a gun to school today. Sheriffs investigators say the report was unfounded.
The student who was the subject of the threat was interviewed. Investigators say the student didn't have access to a weapon, and they've determined the initial report was false.
